Through the application of the principles of behaviour analysis the Star Academy team delivers a unique program for each child aimed at addressing each child’s challenges and delays. Many decades of research have empirically proven the effectiveness of ABA with children with ASD. Furthermore, ABA is advocated by the American Surgeon General in the treatment of children with Autism. We would like to encourage parents to read Evidence-Based Treatment for children with Autism: The CARD Model by Dr Doreen Granpeesheh, Jonathan Tarbox, Adel C. Nadjdowski and Julie Kornack. The manual provides a user-friendly description of the use of ABA and the CARD model which has come to be known as one of the leading gold-standard approah to evidence -based intervention for children with ASD.

Our Star Academy team collaborate with other professionals including Speech Therapists or Occupational Therapists in order to ensure that the child’s individual and specific needs are met and that we are working as a team to ensure the child’s progress.
Please contact our Head Office on (011) 440 7796 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment.
Autism School Solution – Johannesburg, Durban & Pretoria
The first step is to set up an appointment to visit the Academy closest to where you live. The second step is to complete our intake paperwork. Once we have received your completed intake paperwork we will enter your information onto our waiting list. If you do not live near any of our Academies, we may still be able to assist you with ABA services and will put you in touch with our workshop services department. Children receiving workshop services will be loaded onto the CARD Skills programme and the Star Academy will assist you in recruiting and training a team of ABA Instructors to implement your child’s programme in your area. On-going supervision is provided to children who receive workshop services.
The Star Academy is based in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Durban. Our workshop services department services children around South Africa and Africa including Zimbabwe, Ghana and Mauritius.
