Breakthrough Interventions South Africa 1:1 behavioral therapy for children with ASD, provides school facilitation, as well as parent and teacher training.

Breakthrough Interventions South Africa is a branch of Breakthrough Interventions in Denver, USA. We provide school facilitation as well as 1:1 individualised behavioural therapy sessions for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Intensive behavioural therapy teaches children to communicate and express themselves verbally, as well as promote their academic, social, and independence skills. We teach children how to regulate their own emotions and behaviour and then assist them with learning how to learn. We advocate for mainstream schooling for all the children we work with in order for them to reach their full potential.
