PARENTS WANT SUPPORT THAT’S CUSTOMIZED FOR THEIR CHILD
To become a world-leader in customizing autism programs, I spent 25 years gathering research-based
autism education and therapy strategies, from hundreds of different programs, from around the world, and gained insights by listening to parents and spending thousands of hours with autistic children themselves. Now, my mission is to pass on the best of these strategies, insights, and experiences. My name is Jonathan Alderson, a Harvard graduate, author of the award winning book Challenging the Myths of Autism, and founder of the world’s first customized online autism resource the ThriveGuide. And I can’t wait to help you and your family live your best life possible. - Jonathan Alderson, Ed.M.
“CALM IS POSSIBLE”
YOUR CHILD CAN LEARN BETTER WAYS TO EXPRESS BIG EMOTIONS
Reduce the intensity and duration of your child’s tantrums. Feel more comfortable and clear about what to do. It’s possible! All kids tantrum. But they can be especially challenging for an autistic child who may also be struggling with communicating their needs and feelings. Parents naturally feel empathy when tantrums happen and do all they can to avoid them. But often, our natural reactions unfortunately fuel the tantrums, making them more likely to happen again and again. Understanding the tantrum dynamics and what your parenting goal should be makes all the difference. In this webinar, you’ll learn the three principle strategies that have been used for the past 25 years with great success.

Grow an even better relationship with your autistic child
Rapport is the master key to faster learning and more cooperation. You already have a ‘connection’ with your child, and you can leverage this special bond to increase their receptivity to even more social rapport. The more your autistic child pays attention, observes others, and participates, the faster they will learn. Jonathan’s rapport building strategies are natural, frictionless, and easy to shift into.
