Rethink Autism: revolutionary web resource

Jun23

by

rethink_autism_logo.gifWe love it when we come across a service or product that is so obvious that it should exist but hasn’t, until now.
Rethink Autism is one of those businesses.
With one in 150 babies expected to be born with autism this year, I’m sure each one of us knows a family with a child on the autism spectrum. We sure do, and the recurring theme that is echoed by these families is that the only effective treatment for autism is intensive treatment and the bottlenecks parents continuously face are 1) access to effective treatment, and 2) its financial cost.
That’s where Rethink Autism comes in. It meets the immediate needs of autism families.

Rethink Autism provides parents and professionals with immediate access to effective and affordable treatment tools and they do this with a web-based program centered around hundreds of dynamic instructional videos of best practice teaching interactions, and step-by-step training modules. The site’s innovative assessment tools help parents and professionals design individualized programming to meet each child’s learning goals, while state-of-the-art data-tracking systems allow users to track the learner’s progress.

Rethink Autism’s methods and resources are based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and their Senior Clinical Advisor, Dr. Bridget Taylor, personally reviews each of the lessons and training videos accompanying the curriculum, ensuring clinical integrity and the portrayal of research-based teaching strategies.

And lastly, in terms of cost, while ABA is the best known method for treating children with autism, practitioners and schools cannot always bring ABA to each and every child who might benefit from it. For approximately the cost of a single hour of individual therapy by a certified professional, Rethink Autism offers its monthly subscribers access to the resources necessary to begin working with a child immediately.
Parents need to know that Rethink Autism is an available resource. Please help spread the word.

    As a speech-language pathologist, I am very interested in the service this site can provide. Actually there is a third recurring theme among these families which is garnering the time and energy to fight for these services.
    I would be interested to hear from clients who have used the service and how effective it was. It sounds like there is a lot of instructional information provided but is there individualized feedback?

    This sounds like a great resource. I can’t wait to share it with other moms! My cousin is autistic and lives in an area where specialized therapy doesn’t exist. I think this is a possibility for his family. Thanks for finding it!

    I subscribed to this site few weeks ago and I found it very helpful. Basically they have hundreds of lessons with videos demonstrating how to do the exercise. I was impressed by the quality of the video and the teaching instructions.
    Regarding the individualized feedback, you can record results and they tell you what to do next. Not sure I answered your question.

    Hi – Jamie from rethink autism here! Just wanted to add – in response to question above – that we do offer online curriculum support. This allows users – parents and other team members – to send in questions that are fielded within 24 hours by our team of trained therapists. In addition to the feedback when you record results – as Melissa mentioned – we can provide additional personalized suggestions through this service. For those interested in giving us a try, we are currently offering through August 31 a 20% discount on the first month of a monthly subscription. Just use promotional code: RA2009NAA

    I am interested in the program, however my concerns are; I work part time, and my son is looked after by his Grandmas, each take him one day a week. He also has a developmental Aide every day and he is going to a special needs kindergarden in Sept. Is this a program that can be used along with being in the care of other people? His school is kind of using the SCERTS program along with PECS. Will the use of this program make things worse for my son, will this confuse him? As different methods are used from what the school is using? Or will this make life easier for all? He currently has a short attention span, and is disruptive.
