PACT stands for Pre-school Autism Communication Therapy and is a new a form of therapy supporting young children on the autism spectrum build long-term communication skills and is now ready to be used across the NHS.
This approach is a parent-led-video-feedback-therapy and involves a therapist filming parents playing with their child. Parents and therapist watch the film back together and positive interactions are discussed and put into practice at home. The sessions can help children develop their own communication skills without attempting to “teach parenting skills” or “cure” autism.
