Be The Best Early Interventionist
For A Child With Autism
Be The Expert Your Child (or Student) Needs
When you understand the stages of development, you’ll better understand how to help each child. The kid(s) you work with will have the opportunity to grow more when you play at the right level.
Techniques You Can Use Anytime, Anywhere
Once you get the techniques down, they’ll become so natural you’ll use them when you’re not even thinking about it. You won’t have to find extra time, you’ll be able to implement them in all your regular daily activities
Engage Kids With Adaptable Activities
Because each child goes through the stages of development at a different pace, you’ll be able to easily adapt activities to target specific skills that the child you’re helping is working on.
LEARN TO PLAY WITH PURPOSE
AND THEN PLAY TO HELP KIDS PROGRESS

I WANT TO HELP EACH CHILD
REACH THEIR POTENTIAL
HELLO! I’m Joy. I began working with people with developmental disabilities back in 1998 (wow that makes me feel old). In 2007, I started specializing in working with young kids on the autism spectrum and training parents and educators.
I know that it can get overwhelming and confusing trying to figure out what type of intervention is best for a child. Whether you are a parent, educator, or therapist sometimes you have to do a lot of trial and error to find out what works.
I believe that kids learn best through play and experience, and that’s why I’ve chosen to focus on play-based learning. Even kids that don’t “play” the way that others may expect them to, are learning through play.
Intervention doesn’t have to be complicated. There are simple adjustments that we can all make in our interactions that can help the kids we’re working with have more opportunities of growth. There are also ways to implement different strategies in every day activities, so you don’t have to find extra time in your day (that we all know doesn’t exist anyways).
I wish I could be everywhere, helping everyone (honestly, I would definitely choose teleportation as my superpower, if I could). As I’ve thought about how I can help more people, I realized that I can have information available that will help families everywhere and anytime. That is why I decided to create the Early Intervention Tutorials 🙂
