This well-researched and evidence-based programme was formulated in response to the severe shortage of educational programmes designed for higher functioning school-age children with ASD, which often leads to inappropriate placement, and a lack of supports...all of which inevitably results in poor educational experiences. The programme uses a positive behaviour support approach and incorporates strategies that address areas of difficulties common in children with ASD, specifically sensory functioning, social relatedness, self-regulation, managing anxiety, and selective cognitive problems. This programme helps children function comfortably and successfully in mainstream settings in their schools and communities, whenever feasible, with decreased need for professional support.
