Empowering People, Launching lives

Real world evidence

Impact delivered through the principles of ABA

We’re incredibly proud of the work we do with children and young adults in our services. Everything we do is focused around the idea of ‘just enough support’ – providing all of our learners with the skills and confidence they need to progress to adulthood.

Partnerships, alongside multidisciplinary working, are a key part of everything we do – we believe in working collaboratively with others, sharing best practice alongside ideas that haven’t worked, to ensure we are all doing our best to deliver excellence for the children and young adults we work with.

Since 2018, BeyondAutism staff have been compiling a bank of real-world examples of learner progress, with the anticipated learning that comes alongside, and are developing these into case articles that we hope will provide inspiration for you.
