At SGS Pegasus School we use a variety of strategies to understand children’s behaviour. Our exerience of working with children with ASD shows that some behaviours result from not being able to communicate their wants and needs. Our approach identifies distress early and we respond positively, in a non-restrictive way. We only ever use supportive physical interventions when it is essential to safety.
This proactive approach comes from the PROACT-SCIPr-UK® philosophy. It is based on evidence and values and takes the ‘whole-person approach’ to supporting people whose behaviour can be of concern and in turn, can restrict their own lives and independence.
This positive approach gives our pupils independence and self-control which enables them to live a fulfilling life.
