Abstract

FuturoSchool is a system of evaluation, intervention and parental training for individuals with autism based on applied behaviour analysis. It has a capacity of 12 students receiving 1-to-1 behavioural services during 22 hours of intervention per week.
Students work in natural environments alongside neurotypical children, including mainstream school classrooms, municipal swimming pools, music academies and fitness centres. Our team also provides home-based parental training. Since 2012, FuturoSchool undergoes a behavioural assessment every year with the goal to ensure the correct application of behavioural principles and ongoing professional development of staff. These endeavours are led by a senior and junior supervisor, BCBA-D and BCBA respectively, who are responsible for the overview of the service delivery including staff training. Other team members are currently in the process of becoming certified in behaviour analysis or being registered as behaviour technicians.
Our devoted team faces an environment where behaviour analysis is not fully accepted, where people with autism are not welcomed in regular classrooms, where access to sports and cultural activities is restricted and where autism remains largely unknown. The development of FuturoSchool as an evidence-based structure will be discussed with data of yearly evaluations and major achievements of our students and team members.
