Tom Caffrey’s training videos offer an excellent resource! Anyone assisting children with autism will find them inspiring, enlightening, and immediately useable. One is offered basic but profound insights into how to address what can appear as overwhelming problems faced daily by families and professionals seeking to serve children with autism.
A parent, a therapist, or a collaborative group who know the child is given essential tools, such as key questions used to gather information for generating an achievable action plan, strategic use of reinforcement, pitfalls to avoid, and realistic goal setting that takes into account the interests, needs, and unique factors of each child.
Mr. Caffrey presents each skill area in clearly outlined steps. One watches as real children overcome real barriers, given the deliberate step-by-step support of their parents and therapists. Watching these actual cases of some very difficult situations being dealt with realistically and successfully, one is left feeling that positive changes are absolutely within reach.
