The following information is provided by Division TEACCH:


The primary aim of the TEACCH® programme is to prevent unnecessary – institutionalisation by helping to prepare Autistic people to live or work more effectively at home, at school, and in the community.

Special emphasis is placed on helping Autistic people and their families to live together more effectively by reducing or removing Autistic behaviour.


Professionals have used a variety of names for the severe disorders treated by this programme. These include childhood psychosis, childhood schizophrenia, infantile Autism, developmental disabilities, severe emotional disturbances, aphasia with behaviour disturbance and pervasive developmental disorders.


The major services provided by Division TEACCH® include diagnosis and assessment, individualised treatment, training for professionals and parents.


Any person with severe delay or deviancy in communication, social or emotional – development, needs developmental evaluation. Someone exhibiting a developmental pattern that included some of the characteristics listed above should be referred to the TEACCH® system for psycho-educational evaluation aimed at making treatment decisions.


The purpose of treatment is to maximise adaption for each client through the two related efforts of improving the clients skills for living and structuring the environment to accommodate specific client deficits.

Treatment is focused on six interrelated areas:

1. Developing special ways in which the client can enjoy and understand other people and live in better accord at home.
2. Increasing the clients motivation to explore and learn.
3. Improving uneven development of intellectual functions. Therapists
and teachers assess the clients learning abilities and design teaching methods and strategies in appropriate developmental sequences to improve the clients communication, social and coping skills. In collaboration with the family, behaviour modification programme’s and self-help skills are also developed. All programming is designed to meet the needs of each client and family by forming an Individualised Education Programme (IEP).
4. Overcoming impairments in fine and gross perceptual motor are as through physical exercise and eye-hand activities.
5. Reducing the stress of living with a handicapped person for other members of the family.

6. Improving problems in the clients school adjustment.

TEACCH® has increased its services, to include programme’s in Delaware, Indiana,
