“… a true game-changer in our family.”

and other encouraging words from Start Communicating Today parents and SLPs

I was feeling lost when it came to helping my three year old with autism during and between his speech therapy appointments. I spent many nights doing research, but I was completely overwhelmed with all of the different recommendations and pieces of information.

Rose’s programs not only helped me save a ton of time (and my sanity), but they also helped to feel more confident in helping my child communicate. I finally feel like I am using our time between sessions to move him closer to his goals and he has been making so much progress as a result.

I am so thankful Rose has taken the time to share her knowledge and experience and has provided this practical yet concise information — it has been a true game-changer in our family.

A word for parents…

When I talk with parents who have little ones with autism, they use words like frustrated, uncertain, and even left out. With no formal training, they often feel like they can’t contribute to their child’s development in meaningful ways.

I’ve been where you are.

When I first began working with autistic students, I felt completely overwhelmed. But I adored these kids, and I was determined to figure out how to help them communicate.

For the past 20+ years, I’ve focused exclusively on autistic learners in both public schools and ABA clinics. The strategies I’ve developed along the way—the same ones you’ll learn through my courses—changed my students’ lives. And mine, too.

I’m looking forward to meeting you inside Start Communicating Today.

Feel supported in your work.

Too many professional development courses are frustratingly theoretical. And if you need help actually applying what you’ve learned, there’s nowhere to turn.

That’s why your Start Communicating Today purchase includes exclusive access to my online community, along with monthly group coaching sessions.

This course has given me an immediately applicable road map for how to work with an autistic toddler or preschooler from assessment to treatment. Everything mentioned is highly valuable as are the practical materials included. This course is comprehensive and even goes into group skills for how to best collaborate with teachers when servicing this population. Whether you are an SLP student or professional, if you need a crash course in conducting speech therapy for autistic toddlers or preschoolers, I couldn’t recommend “Start Communicating Today” enough!

Is ABA really OK?

And other important questions…

Is ABA really OK? I've heard criticism...

I’m so glad you asked this. Some adults in the autistic community are uncomfortable with ABA. That’s because too often ABA is employed as a one-size-fits-all approach that disregards each child’s unique capabilities and needs.

That’s not how I approach this work. I’ll teach you to apply ABA principles in thoughtful ways that help autistic students learn—without compromising their individuality.

I'm an SLP and I already feeling stretched thin. Do I really have time for this?

I totally hear that! That’s why I’ve structured Start Communicating Today to give you maximum results in minimum time.

Every module and resource inside the program gives you must-know information and apply-today strategies. With some subtle tweaks in your classroom or therapy sessions, you’ll be amazed by how much more spacious and streamlined your sessions feel!

Start Communicating Today is truly a gift to your autistic preschoolers and to your future self. And if life is a little hectic right now, no problem! You can devour the entire program in a couple of sittings, or work through everything in little bites and take as much time as you need.

I'm a special education professional. Will this course benefit me?

Absolutely! You’ll particularly enjoy the group teaching module.

My child has autism. Will this course help me?

Definitely. You’ll learn groundbreaking ideas about autism and communication that will help your child learn and thrive.

Do you offer group pricing? And do you take purchase orders?

How long do I have access to the course?

You have 24/7 access to the course for 3 months from your date of purchase.

Can I share one of the resources I got in the Start Communicating Today course with another therapist or colleague?

Please don’t. Each purchase is intended for one person. If you know someone who would benefit from an ABA Speech resource, please send them to abaspeech.org.

Can I get a trial period? What if I’m not happy with the program?

If you watch the video tutorials inside the modules and decide this course isn’t for you, contact me within 3 days of your purchase, and I’ll process your refund—no questions asked.

Please note: If you download any of the bonuses or PDFs, I’m unable to grant a refund because of the instant and irrevocable access you receive once they’re delivered.

How can I leave feedback or ask you questions?
