Teacch

The TEACCH approach was first developed in North Carolina in 1966. On reading more about TEACCH, many parents realize that they inadvertently adopt the same kind of methods without realizing it. How many of us have set up a working area for our autistic child? How many of us use schedules, pictures and social stories to enable our children to make sense of their environment? The TEACCH approach aims to help children make sense of their environment thus ameliorating stress and fear rather than addressing autism directly.

The structured teaching approach starts on the premise that autistic children access the world mainly in a visual way and also that structure and predictability is vital. The physical environment is structured both at home and at school and the child is told in visual form (pictures, words etc.) exactly what to expect next.
