About the Programme


The Basic Concepts Programme© (BCP) is a holistic and developmentally orientated metacognitive intervention programme for young children who experience language, information processing and socio-emotional barriers towards learning.

The programme was developed to address the specific cognitive and developmental needs of young children as they progress from the concrete thinking of pre-school to the more considered, logical, and reflective thought required for formal learning (reading, writing, spelling and mathematics).


The BCP departs from the notion of a static, diagnostic classification of learning ability, moving towards an active, modifying and interventionist approach that aims to enhance thinking and learning processes.
