Autism Pilot Project

I took a year out between my undergraduate degree and my teacher training, during which I worked on a pilot project within Glasgow City Council researching autism. I worked here with a pre-school child on an early intervention programme, employing Applied Behavioural Analysis techniques. This post involved working alongside teachers, parents, physicians at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow, and Scotland’s leading educational psychologist, in producing research documentation and practical guidelines in the education of children with autism. The success of this project was in the provision of government funding for a city establishment where these techniques are now being employed, helping many autistic children into mainstream schooling.
