We mainly ensure children have a holistic and empowering experience at school and facilitate an inclusive environment for the child. We use only those intervention approaches and strategies that are respectful of and do not violate the developmental readiness and the rights of the child.
We don’t work on toilet training, eye contact, sitting tolerance and increasing attention span and stimming behaviors. We also don't work on the child behavior to fit into a neurotypical manner.
Our shadow teachers follow a TEACCH based approach. We do not use ABA approach as it tries to change the behaviors of the children and fit into a neurotypical norm.
Children with autism are often visual learners. Our trainers use whiteboards, emoticons, videos and interactive tech that makes the learning process more enriched for the child. Our trainers a are also trained to use AAC and they incorporate the same in their online sessions for children who do not use speech to communicate.
Our therapists are creative and give constructive feedback to the child for every little step he/she is taking in online sessions, they make the sessions attractive so that the child has an interest in it and it helps to establish rapport
We understand your child might not be able to navigate and use the platform right. We recommend that an adult or caregiver be present only for the first few sessions to ensure the child feels comfortable and can make sense of what is happening.
The most effective way is the usage of earphones/headsets. The child should be in a place with minimum noise and the involvement of parents/helpers should be minimized.
