Why ‘Ketchup for Breakfast?’

What’s in a Name?

Ketchup for Breakfast is an analogy that highlights the issues many children on the spectrum experience with food. A child eating Ketchup with every meal to disguise the taste of the food was an issue facing one family every day. When asking what this child had for breakfast – they replied ‘Ketchup for Breakfast!’ That expression has stayed with us ever since. The holistic way we helped to resolve this ‘problem’ has come to represent the ethos of our working practice.

Our Experience

We have over 25 years of working with children who have additional needs, most of which are with children who have autism spectrum conditions.

Parenting children on the spectrum ourselves – we can say with sincerity that we understand the diagnostic journey (both as parents and professionals) and the alienation, isolation and sleepless nights faced by many parents!

Our training includes a Degree in Autism from the University of Birmingham, certified portfolios with the Autism Education Trust with one of our team members being one of only three people in the country to be awarded a Gold Award for Exceptional Autism Practice within the field of education.

The field of Autism is an ever-changing environment. We keep up to date with news and latest research, we don’t like to miss key opportunities to learn new skills. We feel it is important to be at the front of the knowledge curve and to be leaders in our field.

All our team have clear Enhanced DBS Checks and Child Protection training and are fully insured.
