Comments on Children with Special Needs: Autism Spectrum Disorder:
Thank you for opportunity to express how much I like your courses. I love that I can work on them, on my own time, from my own home. I live in Massachusetts where it of course snows ALOT!! And being able to work from the comfort of my home on a snow day is invaluable. The best part is the courses that I have taken have been very informative. I keep the Autism course book in my classroom for reference. So worth the cost. I look forward to taking more courses. Thank you again. - South Easton, Massachusetts
I received the book course in the mail just a few days after ordering it. Thank you for your promptness. My sister and I (both licensed childcare providers) have been doing care courses for years and think it is the best route to take. That way we have the books to refer back to if ever needed, or just to brush up on certain topics. - New Prague, Minnesota
Your classes are awesome! I received the courses (book) very quickly and completed one right away and started another. Your service is such a wonderful way to get the continuing ed courses I need and get new information instead of the same old stuff that "workshops and seminars" offer. Thank you for the opportunities you afford to preschool teachers. – Cockeysville, Maryland
I am enjoying the format of the Teaching Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and have already implemented a couple of changes to my current home day care set up to help my new little student transition from Mom and Dad at drop off into being with us for the day! Can't wait to complete it so I can fully understand this disorder and be the best I can be for my little guy! - Leicester, Massachusetts
