The Pyramid approach to education has been created by Dr A Bondy and is based on two learning elements:
Instructional; Using Applied Behaviour Analysis to provide a foundation for positive growth.
Structural; Focusing on functional activities and communication, powerful reinforcement and behavioural plans.
The systematic approach allows educators to individualise each child's learning to maximum effectiveness. Functional communication allows students to access education they would be unable to in the "normal" way. This includes the picture exchange communication system, modified and picture supported speech, signing and gestural non-verbal prompts. All individualised to meet the needs of students.
