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.
LEARN HOW TO...
UNDERSTAND BehaviourYour 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 behaviourYour reactions to your child's behaviour will determine if the same behaviour increases or decreases.
PREVENT your child's Challenging BehaviourLearn 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.

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.
A 12 Week Interactive and Guided Online Course...
In this module we cover the basic principles and functions of behaviour so that you can become a behaviour detective!
Introduce overall treatment goals, concepts of functions of behaviour, antecedents and consequences of behaviour.
Learn how to prevent problem behaviours from having to occur.
Discuss antecedents to behaviour problems and develop preventative strategies.
Learn how to design and teach your child to use a daily schedule; an effective type of prevention strategy that helps minimise problem behaviours.
Develop a daily schedule and identify points of intervention (including use of visual schedules) to decrease problem behaviour.
What floats your child's boat?? How can you use their motivation and interests to teach them new skills and replace problem behaviours?
Introduce concept of reinforcers – to promote compliance, strengthen desired behaviours and teach new behaviours.
Learn how to recognise moments to reinforce your child during every day situations as well as scheduling time to practise playing with and reinforcing your child's behaviour.
Introduce ‘catching your child being good’. Teach play and social skills through child-led play
There may be times when you need to ignore your child and/or their behaviour depending on the function (purpose their behaviour serves them).
Explore systematic use of extinction (via planned ignoring) to reduce behavioural problems.
Increasing learner willingness
To create a willing/cooperative learner you need to earn instructional control.
Introduce effective parental requests and how to teach your child that following adult-led demands is in their best interest.
Functional Communication Training
If your child was a fluent communicator what would they be saying right now? What can we teach them as a replacement behaviour that's a more appropriate and effective way of getting what they want?
Through systematic reinforcement, teach alternative communicative skills to replace problematic behaviours.
Teaching Skills 1
There are very specific teaching strategies that you can use to help teach your child new skills.
Using task analysis and chaining, provide tools to replace problem behaviours with appropriate behaviours and how to promote adaptive, coping and leisure skills.
Teaching Skills 2

Learn various prompting procedures to use while teaching skills.
Generalisation & Maintenance

Generate strategies to consolidate positive behaviour changes and generalise newly learned skills.
+++ Plus The Guidance & Reinsurance of Being Taken Care of By a Professional!
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.
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:
- You haven't had any training on how to manage your child's challenging behaviours
- You might have received some training but you are utterly fed up and want to learn some strategies that ACTUALLY work.
- You are willing to put in the effort to change your own behaviour to change your child's.
- You are already implementing some effective techniques and want to dive deeper into the science of behaviour to learn more.
- You are worried your child is not receiving adequate support/intervention at nursery/school and want the best outcomes for them.
- You are ready to learn so that you can recognise teaching opportunities across your child's whole day.
