Online ABA Programmes

The Beam Difference

Parents and carers seeking ABA support for their child with Autism (ASD) or other behavioural issues often find provision within the UK fragmented and unregulated. In order to prevent this, all staff at Beam receive thorough and regular ABA training, professional supervision and ongoing support for BCBA or BCaBA accreditation. As an organisation, Beam is also regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Many parents chose to train themselves on ABA.  This can be empowering they are able to implement ABA strategies as part as part of normal family life. However, it can also be isolating and frustrating when a strategy that previously worked seems to become less effective as time goes on.  Our online programmes take the benefits of parent training and add clinical oversight via regular video calls. 

ABA Pathfinder is a guided online ABA programme led by parents. A BACB certified consultant works directly with you as the parent/carer, or your nominated individual (this could be a nanny or other childminder), who adopts the role of a tutor. 

Video calls are held with you and not your child.  You receive all the tools, strategies, coaching and support needed to implement an ABA programme individually designed for your child, with the consultant having full oversight to ensure goals are met and the programme is aligned with best practice in clinical standards.

ABA Pathfinder isn’t suitable for every family.  To find out more about eligibility visit our website by clicking here
