What Our Parent-Led Revolutionaries are Saying
"She would always fuss when putting her shoes on. But this week, she went to find her shoes alone and put them on by herself!
It's big progress because she wouldn't even keep them on before, let alone put them on."
"At 18 months my daughter was undiagnosed and non-verbal. After a few months of using doing the communication activities with her, she began talking.
She is doing so well, I was able to enroll her in a Montessori School. I'm so grateful to have something while we wait for services."
"My son learned how to greet his teacher by her name when entering the classroom by me prompting him everyday and then giving him positive reinforcement immediately after by giving him a little packet of gummy bears. Today he finally did it on his own when I faded out the prompting and waited to see if he would do it on his own."
"He started pointing! Yay!
I asked, "where is your sister?" He simply pointed and said, "there." It's big for us! He has now done it twice. So, although he is taking longer to master this one, I can still see progress!

It's Easy to Feel Overwhelmed
"How do I know if my child has developmental needs?"
"Are the signs I'm seeing a cause for concern?"
"Why is my child regressing and what can I do about it?"
"Is there anything I can do while awaiting a diagnosis or for services?"
You are not powerless. You can teach your child the essential developmental skills they need today, tomorrow and forever.
Why Happy Ladders?
Children who receive parent-led autism therapy have less severe overall symptoms later in childhood, with improved social communication and reduced repetitive behaviors. In addition, research has shown that children can make the same or more progress as conventional therapy.

A “Magic Pill” for Autism?
A few years back, I met with parents for a parent-training session. I had been working with the mom for a few months and her husband was able to join us one afternoon.
After some discussion, he looked at me, arms crossed and annoyed, and said: “So you’re saying there’s no magic pill?”
