The Ysgol-y-Gogarth Model is based on the educational programme provided by the Ysgol-y-Gogarth, an autism-specific school in Llandudno, Wales.
Teaching within the school is underpinned by the principles of applied behaviour analysis (ABA) and, therefore, learners are taught using a variety of ABA-based techniques depending on the profile of the learner(s) involved and the skill being taught.
