The SCERTS model is an approach which focuses on Social-Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support.
The aim of the model is to directly address the core deficits observed in the individual child with autism. It does this by addressing key areas such as social communication, social relatedness and sensory characteristics, as well as by providing support to the individual and to the family.
Practitioners following the model use a combination of techniques and strategies, many of them borrowed from other interventions, in order to meet the specific needs of the individual child.
