“During my 33 years as a speech-language pathologist, I have utilized many different programs and techniques and have provided training to staff and parents. This program is more functional and usable than any other parent training approach I am familiar with! Both the practitioner guide and the parent manual are clear and concise, and offer excellent information and strategies. Parent training and coaching is absolutely a way to increase intervention hours because the parents are the intervention agents. Feedback from parents has been excellent, especially for developing appropriate goals for routines at home, helping with behaviors, and reducing overall stress. The video clips do a great job of demonstrating the different strategies.”

—Debbie Sullivan, MA, CCC-SLP, Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education Program, Northwest Regional Education Service District, OR

“An invaluable, easy-to-use program for professionals working with families of young children with autism. Ingersoll and Dvortcsak translate the latest scientific knowledge into practical strategies for helping parents enhance their children's social engagement, language, imitation, and play skills during everyday routines. Together, the practitioner guide and parent manual contain everything needed to help parents learn new ways to interact with and teach their children. Professionals will enjoy the clear writing and useful techniques, as well as the DVD with slides and video examples.”

—Wendy Stone, PhD, Director, Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD), Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, Vanderbilt University

“Truly an impressive accomplishment. Ingersoll and Dvortcsak have put together an incredibly comprehensive yet detailed 'how-to' guide for professionals who want to teach parents how to be effective treatment providers for their children with autism. The methods in the program are based on state-of-the-art research, and are presented in a logical and easy-to-understand manner. The parent manual is exceedingly clear and user friendly. I have used this program in my own clinical research with tremendous success; I am glad it will now be widely available.”
