Integrated Education and Communication (IEC) offer specialized educational and supervisory support services for children who have autism and other related developmental disorders. The intervention approach adopted by IEC utilizes the core principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), a systematic approach to analysing and changing behaviour. IEC offer a complete developmental curriculum targeting areas such as social, communication, academic and independent living skills. Our goal is to provide children with the skills necessary to utilize the educational and social opportunities available in their family and community, with less professional assistance.
