Description/Abstract

An educational provision for young children with autism that offers intensive behavioural intervention
based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), within an early years mainstream school
setting in the UK, is described. The ABA Class at Westwood School is a collaborative project between the
School of Psychology, Bangor University, two Local Education Authorities in North East Wales (Flintshire
and Wrexham) and the local NHS Trust. Using two case examples, two important features of mainstream
education for children with autism are considered: access to the National Curriculum, and inclusion with
peers in mainstream settings. Standardised test data on outcomes for these children over the initial
12 months of their educational placements are also provided.
