Dr Holland began providing therapeutic intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in 1997. At this stage Paul had already completed his Undergraduate degree in Psychology but quickly realised that SEN and ABA were the areas that he was both passionate for and wanted to learn more about. Paul was working as a therapist/tutor and quickly advanced through the 'ranks' (Tutor, Senior Tutor, Supervisor). When at the level of Supervisor, Paul decided to study Applied Behaviour Analysis formally. Paul studied ABA at the University of Northern Texas where he learnt the techniques and principles of ABA from an academic perspective.

After some time working as a Supervisor and during the period when he was studying at University of Northern Texas, Paul also travelled to San Francisco to learn the particular techniques associated with Verbal Behaviour Analysis. Under Dr Partington and Dr Sundberg, Paul learnt the principles and techniques which he has been adhering to since 2000.


Dr Holland utilises the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (ABLLS) which "is an assessment, curriculum guide, and skills tracking system for children with language delays. The ABLLS contains a task analysis of the many skills necessary to communicate successfully and to learn from everyday experiences" (Behaviour Analysts Inc.).

Paul adheres to Natural Environment Training and describes his particular ABA style as "child-centred behavioural intervention". In addition, Paul realises the importance of the family and wider community and as such always works from a systemic perspective.


More recently Paul had adopted the practices and principles of Positive Behaviour Support which is not very different from what he was already practicing.  The foundations of positive behaviour support is understanding why the individual exhibits challenging behaviour ("triggers"), and addressing the issues to prevent further episodes of challenging behaviour. This assessment is also known as a functional behavioural assessment, and is used to create an individualised support plan. Positive behaviour support aims, through positive methods, to teach the individual new behaviours and enable them to achieve what they want to achieve.
