ABA Tutors

What is ABA?

We provide 1:1 therapy to children with autism in their nurseries, schools and homes. The therapy is called Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and it involves lots of play, excitement and using human psychology to teach new skills.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) breaks down large tasks into small manageable goals and then pieces them together to complete a larger task.

Our tutor qualifications

Our tutors go through a thorough screening process which is aimed to access their initiative, passion and ability to take direction. This process has been developed based on the principles of behaviourism over the past 7 years. Our recruitment process aims to find candidates who have the natural ability to be outstanding Applied Behaviour Analysis tutors.

We select ABA tutors who have or are studying towards psychological and/or education based degrees. We also select individuals who have experience working with children as we feel candidates from this background have the ability to play naturally. All of which contributes to the adaptive abilities of each tutor.

This gives our tutors a head start! They are able to gain knowledge and tips which can take years to collect via their on going training. Our training process is not just related to the ABA theory itself but the practicality of teaching when conducting and ABA session.

Our tutor regulations

Our tutors all have skills tracking sheets which follow the RBT guidelines and training modules and ensure a high standard of ABA. When a tutor is visited by a member of our staff these sheets are reviewed and updated. The tutors also have access to our online portal which is full of top tips and videos to help them with each ABA program. They have assess to this wherever they go!
