Accepting Behaviour


Supporting neurodivergent children and young people using acceptance based strategies.

Working together to support SEND children, young people and their families

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 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’.

How we can support you and your local offer

  • We help schools and education providers to establish a high-quality education and to ensure every child achieves their full educational potential.
  • We offer specialised training to families and schools to help them best support their young people.
  • Our work is specifically developed to support the four broad areas of need defined in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice January 2015: 0 to 25 years.
