The Pyramid Approach Series includes a variety of workshops and consultation services designed to assist teachers, therapists, paraprofessionals, and family members with the opportunity to optimise learning and performance of students who face developmental challenges. These include how to implement the Pyramid Approach to Education model within schools, communities, and within the home. The Pyramid Approach provides a framework that focuses on meeting students’ individual learning needs by combining a unique blend of broad spectrum applied behaviour analytic, evidence-based strategies, with a special emphasis on methods for promoting functional communication, academic, and social skills.
