For any professional moving from facility-based or school-based ABA to home-based, taking Mary's course is a must. If you, as a professional, have ever told a parent or a teacher to implement interventions for problem behaviors that will "make the behavior worse before it gets better," then Mary's course is a must.

As a parent with two young children with autism and a Behavior Technician, I have worked with a wide range of professionals. Regardless of skill level or background I have wished that every professional on my kids' teams be familiar with Mary's approach. The courses make so much sense yet the information inside is missing in so many programs I have come across.

Mary’s courses were a great addition and of great use working as a pediatric OT both in early intervention and outpatient settings. The self help, potty training, and reinforcement sections were not only great tools for me, but I was also able to share these strategies with parents to help their children be more successful.

I Can Help You Get Unstuck...

Hi, I’m Dr. Mary Barbera and I’ve been in the autism world for 2 decades, first as a confused parent, and then as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

 

I know what it feels like to be lost in the autism treatment maze. It’s a lonely, scary place. But, I also know what it’s like to come out on the other side – to see real transformations take place.

 

Over the past 2 decades, I’ve worked directly with hundreds of children with autism and have trained thousands of professionals and parents worldwide, through my online courses. Many children have made miraculous gains.

 

But that’s not every story. With autism numbers rising exponentially, there are millions of parents, professionals, and children who desperately need help and have nowhere to turn.

 

The Turn Autism Around program was designed to teach you effective ABA techniques so you and your clients can live happier, more productive lives.

It was made for you. Whether you’re a tired professional or “gung-ho” parent, the maze is difficult to navigate but with “the right approach” you can get unstuck and take back control.

 

All my best,

Mary

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time will it take for me to participate in the course?

The Verbal Behavior Bundle includes 6 months of access to the Early Learner Course (ELC), the Intermediate Learner Course (ILC) and 25+ bonus videos. The ELC contains 4 modules and should take approximately 12 hours to complete, while the ILC contains 8 modules and should take about 16 hours to complete. Each Module is split into 3 or more easy-to-watch video lessons. The optional homework (which is not turned in) can be done as you work with your child or clients.

What ages will these courses be relevant to?

This program is for parents of children of all ages who either don’t speak yet or speak in one word utterances or short phrases and are not conversational. Regardless of chronological age, the VB Bundle is for kids with language abilities of a 1-5 year old child.

How will the program work if I live outside of the United States?

One of the true advantages of this program is the fact that you can access it any time no matter where you are located. In fact, since the program was first launched in the spring of 2015, we’ve had members from over 80 different countries spanning 6 continents.

Will I be able to ask questions during the program?

Yes, the Facebook Group is very active and monitored on a regular basis by a community manager, Facebook advisors and Dr. Barbera who can discuss the course and answer your questions. Due to ethical and legal requirements, however, we cannot offer specific programming advice for your particular child or client. But we will guide you as you learn from the materials and help you apply the concepts. Best of all, if you get stuck, we will help you. In addition to the FB group, live Q and A calls with Dr. Barbera are available once per month and recorded for those who cannot attend live.

Will I have access to all materials for 6-months?

Yes! All videos, homework, tools, recorded and live calls, bonuses, and Facebook Group will be available for 6-months from the date of purchase.

How does the membership program work after the 6-month period?

At the end of 6-months, you will have the option to continue to receive access to the Autism ABA Help Members-Only Facebook Community as well as several bonus videos through our monthly membership program.

I’m overwhelmed with the information on the internet and I don’t know who to trust and what program to start (diet, supplements, ABA, horse therapy, preschool, and speech therapy). I’m afraid of choosing the wrong interventions. Can your program be done with other programs already in place?

As a parent of a son with autism and a BCBA-D, I know how overwhelming information can be from different "camps" on the internet! That’s one of the main reasons I created this program so you don’t have to sift through all the information on the internet. Within the program (which can be combined with anything you have in place now), I give you step-by-step procedures all based on the science of ABA, which is the most proven therapy for children with autism.

Will CEUs be earned for completing the courses?

Yes! 32 Learning BACB CEUs can be earned for BCBAs/BCaBAs with the completion of all the videos, audio calls + ethics lessons, as well as a short evaluation of the course. A certificate of completion for 32 hours of continuing education will be given to all who finish the course. These hours can often be counted toward professional development requirements.

I am already a practicing professional in the autism field - will these courses be too basic for me?

No, I am confident you will not find these courses too basic. The Early Learner Course was designed for both parents and professionals so it's not highly technical, but it is highly practical for day-to-day implementation with your clients! The Intermediate Learner Course is more geared towards professionals (and parents with advanced training) who need to teach advanced language, academic and self-care skills.
