"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."

"When I first started, Mac wouldn't even sit for 5 seconds with a book. Zero interest in them. I kept at it because of you and your program, now he has several favorite books and one is a must bring, favorite item!"

"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."
