Our Approach



‘We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help and support! It has made such as massive difference to our family and we are so grateful to you!’

Our interventions are based on Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) which is a therapeutic approach developed from the study of human behaviour.  The techniques and procedures involved are scientifically validated and there is strong evidence that they are effective in both reducing challenging or inappropriate behaviour as well as teaching skills.  This has been found to be the case for all sorts of different people and situations and ABA isn’t a therapy designed specifically for children with autism.

 “We have been given practical solutions to so many areas of Veronica’s life – we have learned so much from truly inspirational, kind and knowledgeable people.  Tailor Ed have transformed our lives beyond all recognition – you have quite literally scooped Veronica off the floor, given her a communication system, given her the motor co-ordination & confidence to go up and down stairs – any kind of stairs – and have improved her listening & attention skills and eye contact in a way that no-one else has come anywhere near matching.”- Veronica’s Mum

The approach can however be particularly useful when supporting children with autism because it carefully considers an individual’s motivations.  It is not a treatment or cure for autism however it has been found to be an effective educational approach for teaching children with autism the skills they need for daily life, including a method of communication.  Other specific interventions commonly used when working with people with autism such as Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) are derived from ABA.

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 Tailor Ed, our main focus is to increase the development of adaptive daily living skills.

 “We have been so impressed with the various things that are on offer from Tailor Ed and hope to continue enjoying them. Best support we have had. Thank you.”

“No other organisation helped with toilet training in our culture….even the mosque couldn’t help.”
