The SPECTRA is an applied behavioural intervention program for use by psychologists, special needs teachers, therapists and early childhood educators with children with autistic disorders.
Designed for children with an intellectual age of 18 months to 6 years, SPECTRA enables therapists to develop customised programs of developmental tasks that suit the individual needs of each child. The materials provide guidelines for the successful implementation of a structured program, with clear step-by-step descriptions for teaching various skills.
The SPECTRA DVD demonstrates how the exercises should be conducted. It is recommended the DVD be viewed prior to reading the SPECTRA Manual, as examples on the DVD allow the user to learn and practise their therapeutic techniques and administer new teaching programs.
The SPECTRA DVD also contains Photocopy masters for designing a program and tracking progress and masters of all the Appendices.
