Something we are seriously considering if we lose the tribunal. We have moved lots as DH was in the armed forces. Really hoped this was the last move but things have changed so much now.

Teddington?

I wouldn't call that an ABA unit. Or perhaps other develoments are happening!?

I know people like to 'say' they are delivering ABA when they aren't to compete with home programmes, but they are also keen to deny ABA at the same time to prevent parents from flooding in.

It's a mess I tell ya!!

Inappemp - forgot to say, with you on that, the dc come first as nothing will be right if they aren't happy. There are no better people to impress but them.

IA yes, I share your sentiments, it is all about the kids.

star I can't say for sure if it is teddington or not. It is going to be overseen by an ex treehouse consultant.

but yes, it is a big mess.

As in Son rise?

Is it the proposed ASD unit at Stanley School? I heard rumours this was going to be ABA and to that end Richmond LEA visited Rainbow and Treehouse to observe

Tbh I can't figure it out, though was surprised to see that one of the board members emailed me once.

zzzzz it looks like ABA from the staff listed on the website.

Star It sounds very impressive. I know the OT too, he is one of the many reasons we are moving to London.

Ahhhhh <starlight brain ticking over>

Can't figure out if they actually have a site though.

Yes. Sort of ABA for HFA. Blimey is all I can really say about that!!!!

An ABA unit attached to mainstream - holy grail to me. Seems to be good old Ambitious about Autism involved, isn't Peartree their brand?

Dev9aug Mon 18-Feb-13 22:25:30

googlyeyes it looks like it is going to be Stanley school, the unit is called peartree centre

star it looks like they are recruiting!! That will be right up your street..grin

Oh that's a different school.

Wow though. ABA finally appears to be breaking through.....

Oh I'm only good at irritating teachers!!!!!!!

So will you actually have to live in Richmond to access it though?

Kingston and Richmond hare services now

Share!

I spoke to FS last week and she reckons it will be full before it starts as there are a lot of home programmes in Richmond and the LEA are pushing for MS integration and this will be their answer come AR time I guess.

sickofsocalledexperts Mon 18-Feb-13 22:33:14

Even if it is shit, even if it is flawed, it is a start!

Oh good lord!!

Coz dd's school place will come through shortly and we're currently buying a house on the border, could easily live in one as the other without much of a problem, though we'd have to pop back for secondaries possibly.

But as I said before, we're travellers now.

Isn't it all daft?

sickofsocalledexperts Mon 18-Feb-13 22:34:16

And by definition, it provides ABA for hf kids, as they will also be going into mainstream lessons

Dev9aug Mon 18-Feb-13 22:34:33

Geez, look at the grammar in my last sentence or the lack of it I should say. Time for bed I think.

Dev9aug Mon 18-Feb-13 22:36:21

Yes star very daft indeed. Just when you think you have cracked it, something like this comes along.
