Have You Recently Discovered That Your Child Is Autistic?
We Can Help You Cut Through Overwhelm and Give You Practical, Proven Strategies
To Help You Cope And Set Up Your Child For Success
Being told that your child has autism can feel like a devastating blow. You’ve likely known for quite some time that something is “not quite right”, but you couldn’t put your finger on it.
If this is you, you’re likely to be feeling completely lost, confused and overwhelmed. You want answers but you don’t know where to turn.
You want some idea about how the future is going to be for you and your child, but you just don’t know where to start.
You feel alone. You’re not coping. It’s an uphill battle getting to the end of each day.
You feel burnt out and you’ve started to snap at your child.
You feel guilty and resentful.
You feel embarrassed to go out in public in case of a meltdown.
You’re in desperate need of help and a glimmer of hope.
You have so many niggling questions about your child’s behaviour that he or she is too young to answer.
Maybe you’ve spent hours researching answers on the internet. But even though you may have found information that seems to be relevant, it doesn’t always turn out to be useful or practical in your everyday life.
But what if you could zip forward in time and talk to the person they will grow into and have them clearly articulate answers to everything you’ve always wanted to know?
Don’t worry. We can help you!
We know exactly what it’s like to be in your current situation.
Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know. It can be the daily or sometimes even hourly issues that cause the biggest problems.
That’s why we created “Autism 101 For Busy Parents”, a powerful, practical video and PDF-based course for parents of autistic children.
One of the main goals of this course is to help you truly understand your child. We have first hand experience of living with autism.
The aim of this course is to help parents with children on the spectrum to understand their child’s unique communication and behavioural traits so that they can create a safe and supportive environment at home and at school. This course may also assist other members of the family, teachers and support staff in understanding day-to-day issues around behaviour and communication at home, at school and in social environments.
This course focuses on the profiles of children whose communication and behaviour are difficult to understand and decode. The purpose of this course is to increase parent’s understanding of what autism is and is not, and to provide parents with information and understanding which will help them connect, understand, advocate be informed and proactive in helping their child make the most of their potential.

How Does it Work?
We didn’t write another textbook. It’s all about straightforward responses to common practical questions.
Our resources are short, digestible, and bite-sized answering very specific every-day questions. Not just general advice, but first hand insight from someone who's actually been there that will empower you with the understanding and know-how to implement effective solutions in your own situation.
They are also a comforting reminder that your child will grow. Whatever you’re going through at the moment, it will not be like this forever. There will be good times and bad times but it doesn’t need to be scary.
"Going through the lessons I gained so much knowledge about autism. The topics were well designed and well explained with very relevant examples illustrated. You will understand it easily even if you have no previous knowledge of autism."

"It is an amazing resource with lots of valuable information and heartfelt words all parents want to hear. I wish I had something like this during our son’s diagnosis period."

“I liked the way sections are clearly outlined and it is made clear what information will be presented, so a person can see how the course will have value even before they get into the detail. Not only is this going to be incredibly helpful for both neurotypical parents and carers of autistic children, but also for adults like me who are on the spectrum but were not diagnosed or supported when they were growing up.”
