It’s easy to be overwhelmed by not knowing how you can help your child.

How do I know if my child has developmental needs?

Are the signs I'm seeing a cause for concern?

Is my child behind because of the pandemic?

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.

Better Outcomes

Children who receive parent-led autism therapy have less severe overall symptoms later in childhood, with improved social communication and reduced repetitive behaviors.


No high-hour intervention, no table-time, no rigid structure, no cancellations, no turn-over. 

Created by Parent-Led Pioneers

Created by professionals (who are also busy parents) that dared to imagine a different approach. Happy Ladders is the culmination of more than 15 years delivering Parent-Led Autism Therapy. And seeing the outcomes first-hand.


The Autism Dad Podcast Interview

"I really appreciate what you're doing to help empower parents to help their kids…It's really important that parents have the ability or have the tools necessary to help their kids on their own.

There's something to be said about being able to incorporate therapy into everyday life. It's like learning without realizing that you're learning, so the kids get the benefit without the frustration, or without the more stringent approaches that may be available in other options.

I think it's a really positive thing."

- @TheAutismDad, Rob Gorski

Example Communication Lesson

When young children find an activity or game they enjoy, they often like to do it over and over and over again. This is developmentally appropriate — and also a great way to teach new skills, as repetition provides multiple learning opportunities. This activity will help teach and reinforce how your child can request more of an action they are enjoying.
