AutismFLIX. A Valuable Resource for Parents! Please Share the Link!

I started Special Learning nearly 12 years ago to help parents get access to quality autism and ABA resources. In 2010, there were only 16,200 BCBAs and zero RBTs in the world (the RBT credential was created in 2014). Today, there are over 55,000 BCBAs and 115,000 RBTs just in the US but parents are still on long waitlists for ABA services impatiently waiting as the days that can be used to teach new skills for their child continue to pass them by. Never to be regained… So if you can’t access a BCBA or RBT what’s the next best thing? Learning directly from the best BCBAs, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, and Mental Health Practitioners in the field!

It is with this in mind that we developed AutismFLIX. It’s a very simple to use, on-demand streaming training and educational channel for parents to access educational resources and downloadable materials to allow them to become active participants in their child’s journey to independence. Whether your child has a single ASD diagnosis or ASD with co-occurring conditions, our training and educational platform have the relevant content to help parents become informed, educated, and empowered.

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.
