A great course for professionals: Rose is an exceptional speaker and offers a wealth of knowledge and experience as a speech-language pathologist and applied behavior analyst. (Yes, she’s one of the few SLP/BCBA unicorns!) Throughout her course, she shares a framework and practical tips that made it possible for me to approach some of my most challenging cases with confidence. She goes above and beyond with her office hours and is a fabulous resource for any SLP working with early communicators and students on the spectrum.

Help Me Find My Voice is a great resource for parents with children on the spectrum. After completing the course, at my own speed as my schedule allowed, I felt more comfortable talking to my son’s therapists. The course helped put me on the same playing field, understanding common terms and techniques. At one point, I asked our BCBA if they were using errorless learning (something the course taught me) with my son. They in fact were, and I felt more involved in his therapy knowing this. Help Me Find My Voice is a tool that every spectrum parent should have in their toolbox!
