Who we are
Jonix Educational Services has been working with young children diagnosed
with an Autisitc Spectrum Disorder (ASD) since 2002. Jonix operate specialised
pre-school classes that offer an unique and individualised learning experience
for each child. We currently have 10 centres located throughout the Republic
Our classes are small, highly structured and provide an effective early education
setting. Each class consists of a maximum of 6 children. There is a teacher in
each class with 3 tutors – this means a total of 4 qualified staff working with
6 children. As in all pre-schools, play and fun are encouraged and this is a vital
part of any effective program. All the children are taught in 1:1 situations as
well as in small groups.
Our years of experience working with children on the autism spectrum and their
parents has given us insight into methods that offer optimal results. Over the
years we have worked together with various professionals and programs. We
favour teaching methods which have scientifically proven effectiveness. Applied
Behavioural Analysis principles are used to reduce negative behaviours and
promote behaviours which support learning and relationships.
The individual program
During the first few weeks in school we gather information on the child’s skills.
We then devise an Individual Education Program around these strengths and
weaknesses. We encourage parents to input into the program, guiding us on
areas where they would like us to focus, such as social skills, toileting,
behavioural issues, verbal skills etc. Thereafter our regular update meetings
allow us to partner together with the parents in reinforcing the learning both at
school and at home.
