Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) has become the standard treatment for children with autism or behaviour issues that are caused by ADHD or learning disabilities.Many experts and parents now the limitations of ABA. We offer an alternatives, Development therapy and life coaching .

A Powerful Multi-Modal Treatment for Autism

Raising an Autistic child is a uniquely challenging job requiring a tremendous amount of time and effort. Parents constantly looking for any and all ways they can help their child control his repetitive behaviours or improve his self-care, social and communication skills. Children with Autism, often also show signs of ADHD, leaning disabilities or outer developmental issues.

Scientists now believe that Autism and the other Autistic Spectrum Disorders are caused by poor connectivity within and between major brain structures. Genetic and other factors come into play but ultimately autistic behaviours are outcomes of how their brains are ‘wired’.

The most common interventions – behavioural therapies like Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), special education, and medication – each help somewhat but none of them get at the core cause of the problem: Connectivity in the brain or learning links that our brain built after every experience in or day.

Treatment for learning disabilities

Learning disabilities have no cure, but early intervention can lessen their effects. People with learning disabilities can develop ways to cope with their disabilities. Getting help earlier increases the chance of success in school and later in life. If learning disabilities remain untreated, a child may begin to feel frustrated, which can lead to low self-esteem and other problems.

Experts can help a child learn skills by building on the child’s strengths and finding ways to compensate for the child’s weaknesses.Interventions vary depending on the nature and extent of the disability.

Learning disabilities

A learning disability affects the way a person learns new things in any area of life, not just at school. It affects the way a person understands information and how they communicate.

Around 1.5m people in the UK have some kind of learning difficulty. This means they can have problems when:

  • understanding new or complex information
  • learning new skills
  • coping independently

It is thought that up to 350,000 people have severe learning disabilities. This figure is increasing. An ADHD and Learning disabilities therapy can be mild, moderate or severe. Some people with a mild learning disability can talk easily and look after themselves, but take a bit longer than usual to learn new skills. Others may not be able to communicate at all and have more than one disability

A learning disability is not the same as a learning difficulty or mental illness. 

Some children with learning disabilities grow up to be quite independent, while others need help with everyday tasks, such as washing or getting dressed, for their whole lives. It depends on their abilities.

Children and young people with a learning disability may also have special educational needs.

Adults with a learning disability may struggles with ordinary tasks of life such as looking after themselves. They may need additional support in all aspects of their lives. 

What causes learning disabilities?

A learning disability happens when a person’s brain development is affected, either before they are born, during their birth or in early childhood.

Several factors can affect brain development, including: 

  • the mother becoming ill in pregnancy 
  • problems during the birth that stop enough oxygen getting to the brain
  • the unborn baby developing certain genes
  • the parents passing certain genes to the unborn baby that make having a learning disability more likely (known as inherited learning disability) 
  • illness, such as meningitis, or injury in early childhood

Sometimes there is no known cause for a learning disability.

How the House of Development can help with Learning Disabilities Therapy

Having a ADHD and Learning disabilities therapy can make life very challenging and people with a learning disability often experience a range of psychological difficulties in relation to their learning disability. People with a learning disability may experience abuse and discrimination, which further affects their psychological well-being.

We work to help people with learning disabilities and additional psychological or mental health difficulties. We work with the people and their network and provide individual, family-based and  group-based psychological support. Our services are informed by NICE guidelines and evidence-based practice. We are at the forefront of the development of psychological therapeutic services for people with a learning disability. 

 We also work closely with education and social care professionals to ensure that the services around the person with a learning disability met the needs of the person. 

How Our ASD Brain Training Courses Work

The method involves coaching clients on the performance of sensory integration exercises together with specific auditory stimulation while listening to specially engineered classical music delivered through bone conduction headphones.

Depending on the child, we also use other sensory integration exercises and computerized biofeedback games that teach mental focus on a task as well as social skills.

Changing Connectivity in the Brain – we can rebuild

The House is based on decades of research into Neuroplasticity and child development psychology.the discovery that specialized activities can stimulate the brain to grow and develop at any time in life. ADHD and Learning disabilities therapy activities provide a whole-brain workout that strengthens connections within and between the major brain structures that are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders – the Cerebral Cortex, Amygdala, Hippocampus, Basal Ganglia, Corpus Collosum, Brain Stem and Cerebellum.

This results in more effective and efficient signaling and that makes for better physical coordination, emotional regulation, communication and relationships.
