Our Bestselling Teach Me To Talk DVD

Watch for FREE on YouTube!

Our hope is that parents and professionals around the world will be able to use this practical information for working with infants and toddlers with language delays/disorders, particularly during this challenging season when most of our daily lives have been dramatically altered by this worldwide pandemic. As a parent, I know you're concerned that your child is not receiving therapy. As a therapist, I know you're concerned that "your children" are not receiving therapy. While we can't do anything about that, Johnny and I want to provide tools to help you as you work with your own child at home or continue to support families, whether that be through telehealth visits or sharing information via email, texts, and your own pages and websites.

The Autism Workbook

In my newest therapy manual, The Autism Workbook, I’m sharing what YOU need to know in order to develop speech therapy treatment plans for toddlers and preschoolers with autism. This includes those formally diagnosed, as well as toddlers and preschoolers who have red flags for autism but are not yet diagnosed with anything beyond language delay. These ideas may also help children who are not talking and have a few “quirks” or characteristics of autism that need to be addressed.

In this workbook, learn the twelve most important areas to assess and address communication skills in very young children with autism or red flags for ASD.

At the heart of this process is asking and answering the right questions about a child with autism.

For each of the focus areas, you’ll find a one-page summary and a list of questions to help you determine if the focus is right for your particular child. As you continue to read each chapter, you’ll find even more questions to answer to help you tease out priorities so that you’ll know where you should begin working with very young children based on their own personalities and preferences, in addition to what they can and can’t already do. This is how we truly create an effective, individualized treatment plan and make sure we are starting in the right place.

If you’re working with a young child with autism who hasn’t made significant progress, chances are, you’re working on the wrong things! Let me help you get back on track!

I can teach you how to develop speech therapy treatment plans for toddlers and preschoolers with autism today. Order your copy now!
