JumpStart (ages 18 months - 7 years old)

JumpStart® is designed for families of young children waiting for a diagnostic evaluation or report, and those who have been recently diagnosed or are at risk for ASD.

This is a six-week, entry-level program that provides information, support, training, and tools that parents and caregivers will need to navigate autism today and tomorrow. Parents will receive one-on-one coaching and learn strategies to immediately address their child’s social communication skills.

Benefits of Completing JumpStart

We know this is a period of adjustment, and we’re here to arm you with critical information and real-life strategies to empower your family. JumpStart benefits include:

Your family will meet with a highly trained and certified coach during four one-on-one meetings to get personalized support. You will complete a series of informative online learning modules over six weeks on your own time. During any point in the program, if you have questions, your experienced BCBA coach will be available to answer them. 

JumpStart participants complete the program with actionable next steps to focus on once they finish the program.
