Our Approach

ASAP is an intimate community of therapists and families, characterized by exclusivity. Our children are each provided a private, personalised therapy room.  Availability is thus limited to ensure quality lessons and engagement. 


Children are always supported by one-to-one interaction with their therapist, even in group or social settings, thus focusing on every need the child may have in all settings and situations. 


As neither the presentation of symptoms of ASD nor the profile of a child is universal, effective intervention requires the ‘cocktail approach’ – the combination of a vast array of different techniques, approaches and programmes centred around addressing the unique strengths and needs of each child.  The services and techniques incorporated into the daily application of the A.S.A.P. programme are internationally recognized and sought after, well researched and clearly formulated that includes, but is not limited to:

  • Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA);
  • Verbal Behaviour (VB)
  • Pivotal Response Training (PRT);\
  • Teach Me Language;
  • Relationship Development Intervention (RDI);
  • Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children (TEACCH);
  • Floortime (DIR)
  • NEW SCERTS to be offered in 2016
  • Holistic Approach to Neuro Development Learning Efficiency (HANDLE);
  • Brain Gym;
  • Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets (PROMPT)
  • Makaton
