ty and sexuality to managing social acceptance and bullying. Many new experiences provide learning and growing opportunities for teenagers, including dating, managing money, going on outings with peers, and looking after one’s own hygiene. Benefiting from the insight and experience of leading ABA behavioral therapists, this practical guide looks at not only managing physical well-being and appearance but also the mental and emotional health of adolescents who are being exposed to new social situations and responsibilities while dealing with hormonal changes.

Recognizing that how an individual with Autism copes in adolescence is influenced by early approaches to learning and development, three chapters in the Autism and Adolescence ebook address important issues around early diagnosis and proactive intervention strategies.

  • In Chapter 5, our Autism experts share current knowledge on how to identify behaviors and conditions and co-morbid conditions that may point to Autism in the teen years.
  • Chapter 6 provides important information on how to ensure early and proactive intervention and highlights proven programs to help adolescents with Autism develop life skills, assume self-care, make decisions, and gain social acceptance.
  •  To ensure a safe and high quality of life as children transition into adolescence and adulthood, Chapter 7 explores how to manage the balance between over protection and providing teenagers with independence to manage money, attend social outings, surf the Internet, and travel.

The alarming rise in prevalence of Autism and other developmental disabilities in children have necessitated the need for many parents and educators to seek reliable information about these conditions. Many are at a loss in identifying and addressing the needs of these children due to a lack of knowledge about their nature, strengths, weaknesses, skills and impairments. Available research articles use technical jargon that individuals not adept in Special Education find difficult to understand. Apart from theoretical knowledge, parents and educators need more actionable material to guide them in dealing with their children with special needs.

With the release of this new product, Special Learning, Inc. continues its mission to make a positive impact in the lives of those individuals affected by Autism across the globe.

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.
