Hi I’m Chloe and I am a room leader at Autism Support UK.
My role involves overseeing 6 children’s individualised targets supporting the assistant room lead and parents to set up opportunities for children to make progress in important skill areas. This is done by providing coaching on the job supporting acquisition of theory and implementation of behaviour analytic principles.
Furthermore I prepare ahead, providing lesson plans adapted to the needs of all the children in the room to provide structure and repeated opportunities for learning. So they have the necessary visuals and learning support resources to feel secure and able to learn in a predictable environment. I ensure my room is safe through risk assessments and following ASUK policies.
I have been with ASUK from day one and can’t wait to get started again! I started off as a trainee tutor, gaining experience with various children with varying abilities. I was quickly promoted to assistant lead during intake 2 and again to a Room leader - i have enjoyed taking more of a management role supporting others implementation of behaviour analysis principles. I have experienced every room and look forward to expanding my knowledge further in this position.
I have previous experience working with children through childhood studies and I’m currently studying health and social care. I have worked in 5 different child settings such as a nursery, pre-school, primary school and a school for children with different abilities/ needs. This has enabled me to experience working with children of all ages and has provided me with the experience needed to work with children with Autism.
I have been accepted to study Psychology BSC in September 2017, which I am looking forward to.
I am passionate about making positive changes to not only the child’s life but their family’s as well. ABA is a fantastic method in making effective change in people lives and I am ecstatic that I am able to have this opportunity to make such a big difference to people’s lives.
It is rewarding to observe children’s measurable progress in such a short amount of time.
