Funded by the Dept of Education Home Tutition scheme

Based in Queen of Angels National School, Wedgewood, Dublin 16, ABA Preschool Academy is an educational centre for preschool children with autism and related disorders. 

Our mission is to provide a safe and caring environment for your children. We want to promote independence on all levels and increase the learners’ self confidence in a fun and enjoyable environment. 

Our teaching methods are based on Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) which is a method that has become the intervention of choice for many parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). ABA is not a method of teaching but a way of establishing clear learning paths and breaking them into small achievable goals that are continuously monitored and changed accordingly to ensure success. Children with autism may have difficulty with speech and communication, and with understanding social interactions. Also there may be behavioural problems related to these difficulties.
