The Ministry is seeking suppliers to deliver the Incredible Years Autism Spectrum and Language Delays (IY Autism) programme to provide parents with skills and strategies to promote their child’s emotional regulation, social competence, language skills, school readiness and relationships with others.
A considerable proportion of children with autism exhibit behaviours such as hyperactivity, inattention, obsessive-compulsive symptoms, sleep disturbances, aggression and self injury. Challenging behaviour is therefore common in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Early intervention supports parents and teachers to increase their competence in dealing with these behaviours and provides skills and strategies to improve the child’s language skills and ability to self-regulate. Incredible Years is a series of interlocking, evidence-based programmes for parents, children, and teachers, supported by over 30 year of research. The programmes are designed to work jointly to promote emotional, social and academic competence and to prevent, reduce and treat behavioural and emotional issues in young children.
