Behaviour and learning support assistants
What is a Behavior and Learning Support Assistant?
As part of the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy team’s goal to support smooth transitions towards independence across all aspects of life, TDCC provides specialised support within your child’s educational setting. Our Behavior and Learning Support Assistants (BLSAs) ensure generalisation of key academic, social and communication skills within the natural learning environment. This is in addition to the continued dedication to further develop key skills for mainstream inclusion in-line with the evidence-based learning principles utilised within ABA.
We believe each child’s attendance within a mainstream school should be meaningful.
Our BLSAs are trained to provide daily one-to-one support in schools or nursery in adherence to the child’s individualised treatment plan. All plans are created and agreed in line with the TDCC team approach that allows us to work seamlessly with school staff, parents, caregivers and other professionals to ensure a holistic approach to the child’s daily individualised needs, personal goals and inclusion within a mainstream setting. All BLSAs receive ongoing support and training from a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and Case Manager to plan for the most effective outcomes.
