Autism Therapy Scotland
At Keys for Learning we specialise in helping children with autism and related difficulties across Scotland. Our aim is to unlock your child’s potential by designing and helping you deliver individually tailored programmes that target your child’s greatest needs.
Our programmes are based on principles and procedures derived from Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA); scientifically the most effective approach for tackling a wide range of behavioural issues and specifically autism symptoms.
The Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) state that for children with autism ‘Behavioural interventions should be considered to address a wide range of specific behaviours, both to reduce symptom frequency and severity and to increase the development of adaptive skills’.
At Keys For Learning we can help you manage challenging behaviours and teach skills that are underdeveloped.
Our ABA programmes can be used to:
- Teach new skills and increase behaviours you would like to see more of (e.g. play skills, academics, cooperation, communication, social skills, toilet training, fussy eating etc.)
- Reduce behaviours you would like to see less of (e.g. self-injury, tantrums or stereotypy)
Through continuous monitoring and regular assessments we can ensure that as your child progresses, our ABA programmes are adapted and developed according to their needs.
Working closely with you and other professionals, we strive to maximise your child’s learning potential by designing programmes that are fun, flexible and most importantly child-orientated.
We have supervisors based in Edinburgh and Glasgow but we also travel to families throughout Scotland, within reason. Please contact us and we will arrange a free informal chat to talk through the services we can provide.
Above all, we want happy children!
