It feels overwhelming trying to find the right sort of help for your child and exhausting fighting to access any support at all.
And on top of all that there's the dreaded wait lists....
Raising a child with autism is like being on a journey without a roadmap. But, there are evidence-based strategies that can help reduce your stress and overwhelm and fulfil your child's potential. 

Are you ready to stop walking on eggshells and feel in control and confident in your parenting skills?


The Behaviour Academy

A step-by-step online coaching programme that shows you exactly how to create and implement a tailored behaviour support plan for your child that you can apply with confidence to help fulfil your child's potential.

This course is for..

  • parents of a child with autism (or showing autism symptoms), who's fed up with waiting lists and feeling helpless not knowing how to help their child. This course will teach you how to become your child's best teacher.
  • parents feeling exhausted and stressed out because of their child’s frequent challenging behaviour. It doesn't have to be this way!
  • professionals who work with children whose frequent challenging behaviour is a barrier to their learning.

You’re in the right place!

The Behaviour Academy will give you the tools, inspiration and unparalleled support on your journey to fulfilling your child’s potential. 

Hi I'm Gemma Gilmour, Your Coach

I'm a mum of 3, certified behaviour analyst and parent coach. Having  worked with children with autism and their families for nearly 15 years I understand the impact that disruptive behaviour can have on a family's life.  It's my mission to upskill and empower parents (and professionals) to positively support children with autism, feel confident in managing tricky behaviours and have the tools to teach them new skills. 

Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their own potential, but parenting doesn't come with a manual! The Behaviour Academy IS your parenting manual - it's packed full of valuable hands-on and practical strategies to help you help your child and I'll be with your every step of the way.


  • UNDERSTAND Behaviour

    Your child behaves in a way that works for them. Gaining an understanding of why your child is behaving the way they are is crucial, THEN we can do something about it.
  • REACT to problem behaviour 

    Your reactions to your child's behaviour will determine if the same  behaviour increases or decreases.
  • PREVENT your child's Challenging Behaviour

    Learn simple yet effective prevention strategies.
  • TEACH your child new skills to replace problem behaviours.

    There are very effective teaching strategies for children with autism with decades of research to prove their effectiveness.

This course has been designed to make the content simple and easy to understand. I would love to support you in making these positive changes happen for you and your child now.

Are you ready to feel in control and take action to positively impact your child's behaviour?


Hear what previous course members have to say....

This is Roma, mum of a little boy with autism who had good language skills but engaged in  frequent problem behaviour. He struggled with transitions, being denied access to things that he wanted and coping when things didn't go his way. Roma was able to apply the strategies she learned in The Behaviour Academy and help her little boy flourish.

Lorraine (mum)

The time I spent with Gemma doing her course was invaluable. She helped me to set goals and to monitor them. The goals were around finding ways to help my children with challenging behaviours and also to teach skills so that the behaviours were not necessary. It gave me a new frame work in which to understand behaviours which has helped me to look beneath the surface of behaviours rather than feel like I’m constantly and thoughtlessly reacting.

Leo (Pupil Support Assistant)

Gemma's course was brilliant. It was a very collaborative group and I really enjoyed the collaborative experience with the other participants that was instigated by Gemma's inclusive approach. I can't recommend the course highly enough to practitioners working with ASD children as well as their parents. This course gave me the ability to improve my relationship with several learners and aid them in developing vital new life skills. 

Laura (mum)

This course has been such a profound experience for me. The strategies that I learned and have incorporated into my daily routine have had such a positive impact at home. I would highly recommend this course to parents, teachers and/or anyone who has relations with children and Gemma is the ideal tutor, her experience and work ethic is absolutely paramount and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of it. Thank you so much Gemma you’re a star.

Still thinking about it?

You should give The Behaviour Academy a 14 day risk-free shot if you're motivated by any of the following:
  1. You haven't had any training on how to manage your child's challenging behaviours
  2. You might have received some training but you are utterly fed up and want to learn some strategies that ACTUALLY work.
  3. You are willing to put in the effort to change your own behaviour to change your child's.
  4. You are already implementing some effective techniques and want to dive deeper into the science of behaviour to learn more.
  5. You are worried your child is not receiving adequate support/intervention at nursery/school and want the best outcomes for them.
  6. You are ready to learn so that you can recognise teaching opportunities across your child's whole day.
