Help Me Find My Voice is a great resource for parents with children on the spectrum. 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.
