SAN DIEGO, Feb. 25, 2014  /PRNewswire/ -- ASD Language is a new program that teaches life-changing skills to children with autism who have minimal language. Through a series of carefully constructed workbooks, children learn to:

  • clearly express ideas
  • understand what others are saying
  • confidently answer questions
  • discuss past, present, and future events

In daily sessions carried out by parents or professionals, children labeled as "low functioning" learn powerful communication skills that enable many of them to enter regular, as opposed to special, education. The end result is a transformation in their lives and in the lives of their families. ASD Language is an invaluable component both in improving quality of life and reducing the cost of care.

The ASD Language program:

  • empowers parents and professionals to bring about dramatic changes
  • requires only 30 minutes a day -- far less time than other language intervention programs
  • is inexpensive
  • can be completed in six to twelve months

Dr. Marion Blank, co-creator of the program says, "ASD Language includes all the most valuable tools that my partner Dr. Suzanne Goh and I have accumulated over the past 40 years in our work at Harvard and Columbia. These techniques have brought about incredible results for so many children that we felt compelled to share them with a wider audience." 

A comment from Clara Jackson, a parent of a child with autism, is typical: "Before we started ASD Language, our son's speech was limited to labeling colors, shapes, and objects. A few months into the program, he started using language to converse with us spontaneously. We were shocked by how fast he made progress."
