Abstract:
The application of Behaviour Analysis as an early intervention for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition is increasing within the United Kingdom (Lambert, 2013). Although there is evidence to suggest that Educational Psychologists (EPs) are involved in some capacity with Early Intensive Behavioural Therapy (EIBI), there is a lack of research to inform the profession. Semi-structured interviews were held with four parents who have a child receiving EIBI and two EPs with experience of EIBI. The questions asked were related to the role of the EP within EIBI. The data was analysed using Thematic Analysis as described by Braun and Clarke (2006). The eleven themes identified portrayed the difficult relationship between the Local Authority Services and parents. Recommendations are made to the role of the EP as to how to work effectively and inclusively with cases involving EIBI.
