"It's hard finding that balance of trying to be sensitive to his needs and not putting him in Defense Mode and pushing him enough to expand his world."
If you struggle with holding your child on the spectrum accountable, enforcing boundaries and ensuring follow-through while at the same time being sensitive their needs & struggles, this course is for you. We'll take you by the hand, and give you a comprehensive, step-by-step plan that shows you exactly how to navigate the fine line between enabling and supporting.
Learn our tested accountability process, based on almost a decade worth of professional knowledge & perspective from working with thousands of families in similar situations, as well as our own experiences of being that child with Asperger's.
At the end of our time together, you'll not only have a solid plan, but you'll know when to push, when to let go, and how to ensure consistent follow-through... without any walking on eggshells, excuses or enabling. So if you are ready to finally make progress and get unstuck, you've come to the right place.

The people at Asperger Experts, who created this course, are the world's largest organization by & for individuals & families on the Autism spectrum. Every day they help thousands of families, teens, young adults & professionals navigate the complex world of Asperger's & Autism with real, first-person accounts & advice from people who've actually lived it and are diagnosed with Asperger's themselves.
In this first part, we'll show you the fundamental difference between can't & won't, and help you understand why people with Asperger's are the way they are and how they think. Then we'll outline the basics of getting yourself & your child out of Defense Mode.
It's extremely frustrating to not know what to do and just blindly try things, hoping they work. This part is all about giving you a tested & proven plan, so that you know what to do next, and more importantly, know what not to do.
In order to help your child transition to independence, you'll need to have a lot of conversations with them, so this is the part where we teach you what to say in order to have conversations that break through “the wall” and get productive responses.
In this part, we'll show you how to ask the strategic questions in order to help your child find what motivates them, pick a direction and stick with it. Then we'll teach you when to offer advice, and when to simply offer emotional support.
This part is all about finding and removing the blocks & barriers that prevent your child from moving forward toward independence. We'll also show you what to do when they get overwhelmed and stop making progress.
People on the spectrum often do well with clearly defined structure & boundaries. In this part, we will help you identify and enforce your boundaries so that your child doesn't walk all over you (and you don't need to walk on eggshells).
This Part is all about creating a specific kind of written Accountability Plan that EVERYONE agrees to and follows through on, so that you don't need to constantly nag them asking, "Did you do the thing yet?".
New problems and new challenges are inevitable. So this final part is all about how to resolve new issues as they present themselves. You’ll learn when to pivot and when to put your head down and stay on the same path. This is also our "catch-all" section for anything that we did not cover previously, and questions that were raised during the course that need a bit more time to answer.
