is this you?

Are you struggling to understand why your autistic child does certain things? Drowning in a sea of information that is overloaded with medical jargon? Just want to get to the root of the problem so you can have a meaningful relationship with your autistic child?

If this sounds like you:

  • Overwhelmed by the information
  • Struggling to understand
  • Confused by the behaviors

I know how that feels…

here’s my story

Untitled design (3)

When my autistic daughter was younger, the information that was out there was generally meant for professionals (doctors, psychologists, therapists, etc.) and there was a lack of information for parents.

I often wondered why she did certain things, or what was causing certain things. I questioned the process of things like ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) and whether or not it was really effective. I started to wonder if her behaviors would completely interfere with us having a relationship.

I always felt that once I understood why she was doing certain things, I could figure out how I could best help. And that meant helping her, helping myself, and helping those around us. It meant finding solutions to use at home and changing up our environment to better support her.

Ultimately, these were all small steps that lead to BIG results. My relationship with my daughter is thriving and I attribute this to what I’ve been able to learn and implement.

Now? I want to share that process with you.

Behind the Behaviors


Behind the Behaviors is the result of my 15+ years of research, personal experience, and everyday parenting practices to help parents of children on the autism spectrum to understand behaviors.  

Beyond that? These are the same strategies and methods that I’m using with my neurotypical daughter.

When my daughter was diagnosed, I struggled to find the resources to best help me and to best help her. Now, I find myself in the position to help ease some of that stress and struggle for parents just like you.  In addition to the course, you are also receiving my Behavior Management Bundle and a private support community. 

This course was created by a parent for parents.

Not a parent?

If you work with families in any capacity, this course will still be useful.


How the Course Works

This is a self-study course with several options.

Course modules

Module 1: Understanding Behavior

Lay the foundation by looking at the purpose and function of behaviors.

Module 2: Looking Behind the Behaviors

Build on the knowledge you’ve just learned and take a further look at what’s going behind behaviors.

Module 3: Understanding the Triggers Behind Behaviors

Continue to build on this essential knowledge as we begin to understand the triggers behind behaviors.

Module 4: Interpreting the Communication Behind Behaviors

Now that we understand the function and purpose, let’s take a look at the heart of behavior: communication.

Module 5: Behavior Strategies for Parents and Caregivers

With this understanding of behaviors, we can now begin to develop strategies to help you and your family.

Module 6: Calming Strategies for Meltdowns

 If that behavior has escalated to a meltdown, let’s talk about developing calming strategies (both for your and your child).

Additional Course Materials

Course Purchase Options

Previously, the course was slightly more expensive because there was only one option available- and that was with all of the course elements. But now, I’ve broken it down further for you!

You’ll see the major differences below but if you just want the course and only the course, you can now purchase it separately.

The Course LITE version includes video lessons.

And the Course VIP version is EVERYTHING. Video and audio lessons, plus all of the bonus workshops.

But, the biggest and best part of the VIP? You get 1:1 access to me through three strategy calls. I am limiting how much I will be working with individuals 1:1 and soon the only way to do it is through VIP options like this or by signing up for coaching packages.
