Our Mission

Special Learning’s mission is to empower people with Autism and other neurodiverse needs to achieve their highest levels of functioning and independence. We want to support them in living happy, fulfilling lives.

By reaching out to the global Autism community and teaching them how to help themselves we can make a difference.

It’s no secret that the world is in a shockingly short supply of professionals (called Board Certified Behavior Analysts) trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Yet it’s proven to be the most effective autism intervention in the world.

So we also aim to provide education to experts who can competently diagnose, assess and provide quality, evidence-based intervention to treat a myriad of conditions that range from

  • Social
  • Sensory
  • Vocational
  • language and communication
  • and those complex issues arising from co-occurring conditions

Time is the greatest enemy to a parent of a child with autism and related developmental disabilities. Every day that learning is not occurring is a day that can never be regained. The consequence of those days, months, and years of an individual going without intervention and support means that they are losing out on a chance to live independently. Losing out on a chance to achieve the things that the rest of us take for granted like:

  • getting a job
  • finding a partner
  • getting married
  • having kids
  • living independently
  • being able to achieve happiness and fulfillment

At Special Learning, our mission is to change that!

Our Vision

Our vision can be broken down into groups as we want to help all areas of the neurodiverse community.

Our vision for parents: We know many parents are shocked when they get the diagnosis. They have thousands of questions. But all they want is to help and support their child the best way they can.

Our vision is to create an environment and community where we see parents are not stuck in fear and feeling lost. A place where parents are Informed, Educated, and Empowered. We are doing this with our VCAT service (a lifeline for parents around the world waiting for services) and specialized parent training and resources.

Our vision for ABA Practitioners: With a serious lack of professionals in the ABA field, life is hectic and busy for you. We know you care. So we envision being the number one place for compassionate, empathetic, and ethical ABA professionals to get the best ABA training.

We’re doing that by assembling the top experts in the field to create the highest quality content for our training resources. And we’ll continue to build new products based on the industry’s needs.

Special Learning is led by a minority female who emigrated from South Korea as a child (without any English). She was later diagnosed with Bipolar (in her 40s) and struggles to manage this adversity nearly every day. So diversity and inclusion are part of our DNA.

We are on a mission to help as many people in the world as possible get access to a broad array of quality resources that can put autistic and neurodiverse individuals on a path to their Journey to Independence.

To meet the needs of the global market, our resources are available in Spanish, Russian and Kazak, and Tagalog. And we’re currently in the process of translating some of our products into Urdu, Mandarin, and Arabic.

To increase accessibility and to address the needs of hearing and vision impaired individuals, some of our training materials are simultaneously available in video, audio, text transcription, and Kindle eBook formats.


Parent Waitlist Program

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
