MEET THE TEAM
Hi I'm Veronique and I run the Focus South London Saturday School.
I hope that more parents who aren't as yet using ABA will get a good insight in to what it is and to start programmes with their children at home and school. The Saturday Club will also provide support for parents and training for volunteer students. We would love to welcome you and your children to Focus South London

Excellent Consultancy Support For ABA South London!
We are completely delighted to be able to say that The All Behaviour Consultancy team led by Georgiana Barzey Koyama.
Georgiana has worked with adults and children with behavioural problems and learning disabilities for over 10 years.
She began as a tutor working one-to-one with children in schools and at home and progressed to working as a Behaviour Analyst for NHS and LEA employers. This career progression means Georgiana has a deep understanding of the role of all stakeholders involved in managing a child with challenging behaviour, enabling her to provide meaningful, practical, effective advice and support.
Georgiana is an experienced trainer able to deliver impactful sessions imparting vital information in a clear accessible way. She is dedicated to empowering schools and LEAs to take control of challenging situations creating positive outcomes in a cost-effective manner.
In January 2011 Georgiana founded All Behaviour Consultancy to combine her knowledge, skills and network of professionals in providing solutions for schools and LEAs dealing with children requiring extra support. The Consultancy offers behavioural assessments and interventions for school aged children with Autism and other PDDs.
The holistic approach involves IEP development, training and support for teachers, teaching assistants and other stakeholders, ongoing benchmarking to measure progress, and preparing and attending Annual Review meetings. The aim is to enable each individual child to fulfil their potential by offering a service that is practical, realistic, cost-effective and sustainable.
Georgiana has an Honours degree in Psychology, a Masters degree in Behaviour Analysis (distinction grade) and is BACB accredited. She is a member of the UK Society for Behaviour Analysis and the Applied Behaviour Analysis Forum.

Jodie has worked in Applied Behaviour Analysis for over five years and will complete her ABA Masters degree in 2015.
Her extensive experience has included roles in specialist and mainstream schools and home settings. Jodie is confident and professional with the insight and creativity to design effective behaviour management and learning strategies for children with ASD. She is skilled in training and supporting school staff in implementing these strategies to ensure individual needs are met and the whole class can benefit from the experience.
Jodie is currently working towards BCBA status and manages a caseload of children with a range of abilities and behavioural needs.
