Autism Spectrum Conditions
I have worked with many children with autism spectrum conditions, in their own homes, nurseries, mainstream schools, special school and autism bases. I use a range of well known approaches, including Intensive Interaction, PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System), visual schedules and social stories. I always use the child's personal interests and motivations to plan therapy. I aim to ensure each child's sensory needs are met, as this often makes therapy much more effective. I value input from occupational therapists when working with autism spectrum conditions and may refer your child or for a sensory assessment.
