With Extensive Training in Behaviour Management, Makaton And Play-Based Intervention, Blossom Interventions Uses A Combination Approach That Ensures We Deliver Customized Strategies For Every Child.

Incorporating specific strategies from Applied Behaviour Analysis within a natural and safe environment of 1:1 home-based intervention. We work closely with all members of the child’s team, including the child’s school, therapists and family members in order to manage behaviours in the form of preventative measures as well as a behaviour plan that takes into consideration all of the needs of the child.

Behaviour management for neurodivergent individuals involves strategies aimed at promoting positive and safe behaviours, reducing challenging behaviours, and enhancing overall well-being. Some of the key principles and strategies we focus on:

  • Communication tools
  • Positive Reinforcement
  • Conduct a thorough assessment to understand the function or purpose of a specific behaviour.
  • Clear and Consistent Expectations
  • Visual Supports
  • Structured Environments and ensuring all team members are working together
  • Task Analysis

At Blossom Interventions we ensure behavioural management plans are individualized to meet the specific needs of each child. Working within a team of different professionals and perspectives can provide valuable insights and guidance in developing and implementing effective behavioural interventions.

Family support is crucial within our neurodivergent community as it can significantly impact their well-being and development. Our family support services are designed to assist and empower families with knowledge and skills to provide the best possible care for their family. These services aim to enhance the overall well-being of the family unit as well as provide more understanding and inclusion for the neurodivergent individual.

Our services include:

Parent Training Programs:

  • Programs that provide parents with the knowledge and skills to better understand and manage their child’s behaviours, communication, and daily challenges.

Behavioural Intervention Services:

  • Focusing on improving behaviour, communication, and social skills. Family members may be involved in the intervention process to reinforce learned skills at home.

Social Skills Programs:

  • Programs that focus on developing social skills for our neurodivergent individuals, often including family involvement, play and communication skills to reinforce skills learned during sessions.

Visual Structure:

  • Creating a visually structured home environment is often beneficial for neurodivergent individuals. Visual cues can help promote understanding, reduce anxiety, and improve communication. These visual cues include visual schedules, timers, social stories and designated spaces within the home.

Makaton is a communication system that uses a combination of signs, symbols, and speech to support communication and language development for individuals with communication difficulties. It is widely used as a communication aid, particularly for individuals with autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, and developmental disorders. Makaton is known for its multimodal approach, incorporating signs, symbols, and spoken language simultaneously.

TEACCH, which stands for Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication Handicapped Children, is an evidence-based approach developed by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the early 1970s. The TEACCH program is designed to support individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) across the lifespan. It focuses on creating structured and visually organized environments to enhance learning, communication, and independence.

Online intervention programs have become increasingly popular, offering accessible and flexible support for neurodivergent individuals and their families. These interventions include a variety of components, such as educational support and resources, understanding the theory of social skills as well as introducing some practical training. We also work at promoting independent skills and self-management. We these online sessions as an opportunity to assist family members and caregivers with ways and methods to engage with their children. Our online sessions also include a fun aspect where we work on imitation and dance skills and well as some interactive functional play skills.

Blossom Interventions uses the combination approach which allows us to personalize not just the content of the programme created for your child, but also the delivery and interaction between the practitioners and the child. We believe that every child is unique and will need their own unique blend of strategies to suit their learning style therefore allowing us to adapt our way of intervention based on our children and their needs.

Supporting neurodivergent children in the classroom requires a collaborative and inclusive approach involving teachers, support staff, and sometimes specialists. We focus on these strategies and considerations for creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment for students:

  • Individualized Education Plan
  • Professional Development
  • Structured Environment
  • Visual Supports
  • Clear Communication
  • Sensory Considerations
  • Break Spaces
  • Professional Collaboration
  • Behavioural Support Plans

Supervision for school facilitation involves providing guidance, support, and oversight to professionals involved in supporting neurodivergent students in a school setting. The goal is to ensure that the interventions and strategies implemented are effective, individualized, and align with best practices in education as well as with fitting the needs of the child and the facilitator. We will ensure that the facilitator is familiar with fading themselves out, creating independence but still being close enough to help when needed.

Supporting a neurodivergent child as an Au pair or nanny involves a combination of understanding the child’s unique needs, implementing effective strategies, and collaborating with parents and professionals. Some of the strategies we focus on are:

  • Upskill the individual about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – Understanding the child’s strengths, challenges, and any specific preferences or sensitivities they may have.
  • Encourage communication between parents and Au pair/nanny
  • Upskill the individuals with an understanding of visual structure and routine
  • Ensure understanding of sensory considerations and desired activities
  • Pay close attention to safety considerations. Some neurodivergent children may have a tendency to wander or engage in behaviours that pose safety risks. Ensure a secure environment and be vigilant.
  • Patience and Flexibility
  • Consistent positive reinforcement and clear consequences can help manage behaviours
