Supporting neurodivergent children and young people using acceptance based strategies.




Accepting Behaviour is a specialist advisory and outreach education service. We are a small group of specialist teachers working independently with local authorities, schools and families who are supporting autistic children and those with social communication/interaction differences. 


We support schools and families to help them achieve the best outcomes for their children and young people through delivering a specialised program of 'acceptance-based strategies'.

“Sessions have been a life line, people that can support my daughter and family when no one else would.  It’s been great as Aaron and Jayne also understand what’s happening and can make sense of it all. The sessions are helping our daughter to understand herself, acceptance while helping her gain confidence with who she is. Thanks again, this approach should be used by every school, LA, CAMHS and services as it works!" ️

'Aaron is amazing. He just really gets it. I’ve listened to Aaron a couple of times speaking at an Autism support group. He is very experienced having gone through so much himself but still also lives it daily with his children. He is positive, funny and friendly and such an inspiration. After hearing Aaron for the first time, I came away feeling everything is going to be alright.'
