Learn child-friendly, ABA/Verbal Behavior Strategies so you can start seeing progress today.

You've tried everything and nothing has worked...

The autism treatment maze is an unforgiving place.
You want relief but no one can seem to lead you in the right direction.
Months can turn into years and you’ve seen little progress.

If you’ve ever felt:

  • Frustrated because your child isn’t making progress
  • Afraid because problem behaviors keep getting worse
  • Tired of not being able to go out into the community
  • Hopeless because you don’t know what your child’s future holds
  • Helpless because you don’t know where to turn for help

Parents Just Like You Are Turning Autism Around!

They are leading happier lives and so can you!

Jennifer, Mom & Course Alumni

After implementing Mary's strategies, my boys improved dramatically and were able to attend mainstream schools. Now my boys are adults, graduated from high school and are off to college this year.

Nicole, Mom & Course Alumni

Dr. Barbera's course has taught me so much and has given me the tools to help my son, Brandon, as well as made me a better advocate for him.

Therapists come and go, but parents are parents for life. I think it’s vital that parents start working to educate themselves.

Get Relief from the Autism Treatment Maze Today!

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.


I’ve been in the autism world for 2 decades first as a confused parent and then as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.


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 and children who desperately need help and have nowhere to turn.


The Turn Autism Around® Approach is designed to teach you effective ABA techniques so that you and your child can live happier, more productive lives.


The maze is difficult to navigate but with the right approach, you can get unstuck and take back control.


I’ll see you inside!

Frequently Asked Questions

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

The Verbal Behavior Bundle includes both the Early Learner Course (ELC) and the Intermediate Learner Course (ILC) plus over 25 bonus videos. Each Module within the courses is split up into easy-to-watch video lessons. Most participants invest 1-2 hours per week to learn life-changing strategies. The optional homework can be done as you work with your child or clients. The ELC course takes approximately 12 hours to complete, while the ILC course takes about 16 hours.

Will I have access to all materials for the entire 6 month period?

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

What ages will this course 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.

Will I be able to ask questions during the program?

Yes, the Facebook Group is very active and monitored on a very regular basis by a community manager, Facebook advisors, Dr. Barbera and other professionals 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. Instead, we will guide you as you work through the materials and help you apply the concepts. If you get stuck, we will help you. Best of all if you get stuck, we will help you. In addition to the Facebook group, live Q&A Calls with Team Barbera are held twice per month and recorded for those who cannot attend live.

I consider myself to be a “Gung-ho” parent, but I am worried your course will be too technical for me. Will I be able to keep up?

My course will help you reach your goal of being an ABA-savvy parent! I am starting at the beginning of Applied Behavior Analysis and Verbal Behavior techniques, so if you follow along with me you will be able to keep up! The homework after each unit will be well explained, and we will be standing by to help you out if you get stuck.

I have multiple children with autism and don't have a lot of time. Is it realistic to teach these techniques and see results in a short period of time?

Yes, absolutely! Some of our course alumni are parents who have multiple children with autism. They found they can make a huge difference by just spending 15-30 min per day or week with each child. Then, once you start seeing progress, you can train other professionals and family members to use the same techniques to teach your children.

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

At the end of 6 months, you will have the option to continue to receive access to all the course videos and our Members-Only Facebook Community as well as an entire bonus video vault through our monthly membership program for a small monthly (or annual) fee.

Will I earn continuing education credits for completing this course if I'm an autism professional as well?

Yes! 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. If you are a Behavior Analyst, these would be Learning CEUs (4 of which are Ethics CEUs).

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 90 different countries spanning 6 continents.

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, I know how overwhelming information on the internet can be! 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 any other program you already have in place), I give you step-by-step procedures all based on the science of ABA (the most proven therapy for children with autism) as well as more than two decades working in the field.

I’m still not sure if this program is right for me. Is there someone I can contact?

Yes, you can hit the message button on the lower left-hand corner of this page or email [email protected] and our team will be happy to help you with any additional questions!

Help Yourself, Your Child, and Your Family.

It's not worth struggling. Learn the approach that can help you turn things around for good.
