Autism Partnership on the Today Show

Living with an autistic child can leave an entire family walking on eggshells. Ten-year-old Alex Kline's struggle with a form of autism called Asperger's syndrome has consumed his entire family. His parents Tara Kennedy-Kline and Chris Kline decided to get help. A behavior consultant spent a week in their home to help them regain control. There are fewer tears around the house now, Tara Kennedy-Kline writes, but, even more important, there are more smiles. By Tara Kennedy-Kline, special to TODAY Moms.

A Work In Progress Companion Series Booklets and DVD's

In 1999 we published, A Work in Progress, a manual containing strategies and programs that we had developed over that past 20 years. It is now 2012 and we have (finally!) made some more progress. Our approach and programming efforts have continued to evolve over the last 13 years. We have continued to try to blend a natural, child-friendly approach to teaching while remaining determinedly systematic. We have developed new approaches to solving challenging behavior problems as well as teaching communication, social and recreational skills. A Work in Progress received positive reviews from parents and professionals alike. However, we would often hear, “If we could just see the programs in action, that would be even more helpful!”  We have taken the feedback and developed A Work in Progress Companion Series which combines written booklets on various teaching strategies along with actual demonstrations of our work with students on DVD. We have selected a few of our favorite programs which illustrate the use of behavior methods to teach a variety of skills to students of all ages.

We hope that parents and teachers will find this series a helpful companion and extension to A Work in Progress. We are also excited to announce that all of our proceeds from A Work in Progress Companion Series will go directly to the Autism Partnership Family Foundation!  This Foundation was developed for three purposes:   to provide services to families with limited resources; to fund research that will investigate new strategies and programs that truly make a difference in the lives of children and families; and to disseminate information about evidence-based treatment and provide resources for training parents and professionals

Exciting Research News

Article to Appear in the Journal Education and Treatment of Children Provides Empirical Support that ABA is a Highly Effective Treatment Method and Recovery is Not Just a Dream!

research news

Autism Partnership's Research Department is proud to announce the publication of their latest study, which provides empirical evidence that Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a highly effective treatment option for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The data shows that 45 out of 64 children in the preliminary analysis made such remarkable progress that they obtained IQs within the normal range and successfully completed grade level work in regular education settings

We are eager to share the facts so parents and professionals can make the most of the treatment time, funding resources and personal energy they devote to children, adolescents and adults in their care.
