INFO

Abacus Learning Centre

Abacus Learning Centre is a not-for-profit organisation offering centre-based Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) therapy for children on the Autism spectrum. Abacus Learning Centre began in 2008 by a team of parents and supporters who had a vision to provide early intervention therapy for children on the Mornington Peninsula. The Abacus Learning Centre, in Hastings, Victoria, provides individualised ABA programs in schools across the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston, they also provide pre-school and school integration services for their students. ABA aims to reduce and moderate behaviours including speech and language, social skills, communication skills, adaptive living skills, and play skills.


Abacus: Inter-relational diagrams

Abacus: Inter-relational diagrams is a partnered studio with Abacus which encourages students to consider a more inclusive approach towards interior design. This will be explored through interior strategies such as sightlines, wayfinding and site analysis to establish spatial and social inter-relationships through the perspective of a child on the Autism spectrum. Students will be introduced to the ABA approach to teaching children from early intervention, and how the therapy moderates behaviour of the children.
