You have found your way to our child application form and we are excited to welcome you to our Saturday Club.
Our Saturday Club is unique! We are the only club that you as parents work 1:1 with your child!
One parent will sign up to work with their child every Saturday for 10 weeks 10-1pm with ½ hr lunch break.
The location is the Essa Academy in Bolton.
This exciting new Saturday club is run for children with an Autistic Spectrum Condition or those going through diagnosis.
The group will focus on teaching skills such as communication, social, play and group skills
Applied Behaviour Analysis is a way of teaching individuals with ASC or other learning difficulties by working out what it is that will motivate them to learn, and by breaking every task down into small achievable steps.\
Each step is worked on in a systematic and consistent way, using “reinforcement” or rewards to encourage them to repeat skills needed for future learning.
ABA teaches pupils with autism how to learn, and can be applied to the widest range of skills, including:
- Communication skills
- Social skills
- Play skills
- Independence skills
- Fine and gross motor skills
It has a rich scientific history and evidence base in assisting those with developmental disabilities. There is a wealth of research, documenting the effectiveness of ABA for children with an autism spectrum condition.
The Parent that signs up will work 1:1 with their child and be supported by room leaders (experienced ABA tutors) and Behavioural supervisors, the whole Programme is overseen by a Head Behaviourist who is overseen by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). The parent will attend 2 days training and ongoing training throughout the 10week intake.
Each child will receive an assessment prior to starting and a final summary, which the family can use/present to other professionals, schools and/ or local authorities.
Your child will have targets set by behaviourists to aid progression in areas that parents feel they need support with and from assessments. The Saturday Club, is fun and your children will learn through play, arts and crafts, activities and social groups to aid communication, social, play and group skills.
The cost for the October intake for you and your child (which includes your child's assessment, target write ups and implementation, your child's exit report plus your training at Saturday school plus the 2 day initial parent training) would be £360.
We are a not for profit organisation all funds PAID & donated go directly towards the running of the Club - for example toys, travel expenses and insurance, room hire, management and ABA Supervision, BCBA and professionals and also training.
