Bonus Audio #1
This audio reveals the 7 fundamental steps needed for building strong social skills and a solid foundation for all future learning. It shows you how to help your child build amazing relationships with you and others and as a result, learn far more effectively.
The reason children with autism find this so challenging is because often they have not learnt the necessary skills that typically develop in the first 12-18 months of life. With these essential building blocks in place, you will be able to teach your child the many things that you dream for them; great communication and conversation skills, socialisation with peers, compliance, improved behaviour and day to day functioning, academic skills etc, etc. In order to achieve these goals and aspirations for your child this audio is a great way to start.
It is these fundamental 'socialisation' skills that teach your child the joys of interacting and learning from others, which is critical to their development. Without going back and addressing these skills, a child with autism will continue to develop in a ‘disordered’ way. This audio will help create a great foundation for all future social skills training in your child’s life!
Bonus Audio #2
Equips you with powerful strategies to greatly improve your child's ability to listen and consequently learn.
This audio (downloadable recording) addresses the frustrations of your child not listening to you. While most parents would agree this aspect is not limited to children on the spectrum, it is almost always more prevalent in children with autism.
In this audio I specifically address the areas of…
Bonus Audio #3
This audio is 60 minutes long and will walk you through some simple things you can do right now to prepare your child for talking. It isn't magic but it is a powerful step by step guide with easy to follow strategies you can begin using immediately to help your child talk.
Suitable for both verbal and non-verbal children.
NOTE: If your child is already using language, this audio can be very helpful in building the foundation skills to assist them in using language even more effectively.
Many children with Autism have not developed the foundation skills necessary for early speech development. These 'Pre-Communication Skills' typically develop in children in the first 12-18 months. However this is often not the case for children with Autism, which is why they struggle so much with communication.
It doesn't matter whether your child is 12 months or 15 years of age, they still need to develop these foundation skills first, in order to be able to use their language effectively. It is possible!
This is also often the reason why children have so much trouble learning to comment about their immediate experiences and what they did at preschool/school because they do not have the fundamental social-communication skills that drive them to want to use their language in this way.
As I have experienced with all my clients, I can assure you that when these foundation skills are in place, the language just follows!
More specifically this recording will give you the knowledge and skills to…
The Benefits of Learning Through DVDs
Benefits for Parents:
- Professionals often don’t have time during your appointments/sessions to train and educate you. So this training is vital because you spend more time than anyone else with your child and can therefore make the greatest impact on a day-to-day basis, if you know how.
- It is a much more cost effective way of intensively being trained by a specialist in autism
- You can watch these DVDs at a time that suits you (eg: when the kids have gone to bed)
- It is an effective and interesting way to learn information (rather than through books) as most people are visual learners
- You can view the material over and over again so that you understand and retain the information
- You can lend the program to your child’s teachers to help train them and to help ensure that your child’s program is holistic
Benefits for Professionals:
- It is an interesting and effective way of learning an enormous amount of information in a short period of time
- This DVD program saves you the time of having to find high quality and effective information yourself
- It is more cost effective than attending courses and taking leave from work
- It's a great way of training other staff members and increasing their knowledge in a short period of time
I highly recommend the DVDs as an important background to understanding your child’s development

As teachers and therapy practitioners we aim to find that “just right” challenge for the children we teach.The Autism Essentials DVDs provide an important source of information for learning about the different stages that children must move through to achieve higher goals such as communication and language.
I highly reccommend the DVDs as an important background to understanding your child’s development.
I can highly recommend this program
Posted by Robin Mitchell - Speech Pathologist, Sydney on 23rd Sep 2009
Having worked with children with an autism spectrum disorder for 17 years and having used the Autism Essentials In-Home DVD Training Program with parents, I can highly recommend this program.
The DVD package gives parents an opportunity to learn in-depth of how their child perceives and interprets their world as well as gaining access to numerous practical strategies to help their child.
The DVDs are explicit, clear and easy to understand although packed with information with the benefit that parents can watch them over and over.
The accompanying manual supports parents’ learning by including numerous activities to complete during the course of the program and enabling parents to individualise strategies for their own child. The DVD also allows parents to watch the DVDs at their own pace.
I was able to experience the delight parents had at finally understanding why their child behaved as s/he did and being empowered to have the knowledge and skills to help their child connect with our world.
By far the most informative and enlightning guidance I have received to date!

"The Autism Essential DVD Program is by far THE BEST, MOST INFORMATIVE and ENLIGHTENING collective of information and guidance that I have recieved to date!
I cannot express my gratitude to you for giving and sharing this invaluable insight to understanding autism. Even though I am only half way through disc 6, please know that the knowlegde of persepective has been a wonderful thing.
To finally understand the way my child interperates the world and the way the world may impact on him, has really given me a better insight into the guidance and support that I can provide him in everyday life. I feel that I am able to approach and work with his therapists with a greater comprehension of his needs and not just trust blind faith.
Knowlegde is power! Now I don't feel so helpless, for this I thankyou."
Finally we have the answers we have been searching for.

After watching 3 DVDs I have already noticed significant changes after implementing some of the strategies. I can’t believe the wealth of knowledge you teach in each video.
Thank you for your program, it is a “God send.” Thank you Connect Therapy, finally we have the answers we have been searching for.
