Buyers have said:

  • Thank you for such a comprehensive resource! It has been a while since I've seen children on the spectrum and this resource put me right back on track with regards to session planning.
  • This resource worked great during distance learning. Some parents didn’t feel comfortable with teletherapy so I was able to share these so they could still support their child. The parents loved this as a reminder on how to expand on language which was great!
  • This product really stands out because of the ideas for 2 and 3 word phrases!! This helps us all remember how to keep expanding language! Thanks again for yet another amazing AAC resource!
