Have more fun together.

My 3 -year-old was nonresponsive and only interested in lining up objects. I did just what the plan said to do. My son is now demonstrating shared attention, putting words together and prefers to interact with me instead of lining up toys.

Forever grateful,
Thania Martin

My 4-year- old daughter has a diagnosis of autism and had difficulty communicating with me. She would scream and cry to protest and her grandparents were not able to understand her needs. With the use of the strategies in my plan, my daughter has transformed from screaming to protest to engaging in back-and- forth interactions during play and routines.

I use to ask my 7-year-old daughter a lot of questions to get her to tell me about her school day. With use of the responsive strategies, she is having a conversation with me about her day.

Happy Parent,
