  • Cash for Kids

  • Disability Living Allowance

  • Self-Directed Payments

    • The Fred Foundation

      • Family Fund

      "Our son regressed into autism, losing his speech and much of his development. Medics warned us these might never return. He is now thriving in a Special Unit attached to a mainstream school: talking and learning a wide range of things.  This simply would not have been possible were it not for the programme Judith led us through. Modern ABA/VB methods DO NOT require huge numbers of hours per week, in fact I did all the sessions myself. By really tailoring the curriculum to the current stage of your child and using modern, positive teaching methods (such as errorless teaching and reinforcement) your child is encouraged and supported to achieve success and independence. We watched our son achieve so much, and what's more he really enjoyed it. So, I would urge other parents to put aside outdated images of ABA and let Judith help you too." (Parent)
