 TESTIMONIALS
Here's what our members are saying ...


"I am so glad I found your site. I am a first year teacher in an autistic support class. Since my classroom is new, I didn't have a lot of materials or curriculum. I have gotten so many great ideas and tools for use in my room.
 
What  a great resource!"

"I am an Education Assistant and have supported children with diverse learning for quite a long time. A friend of mine recommended your site as a resource.  I just had to tell you that I'm BLOWN away by this!  It is fantastic.  I actually downloaded so many useful things that I used up all   the ink in my printer!  I can't wait to try out the games, social stories, etc. that I printed off.
 
I can't thank you enough for making my job easier!"

"Thank you for providing me, as an educator, with excellent information and resources, which enabled me to support my students identified with autism so well. I made sure our Autism Spectrum Disorder team through our school board was  made aware of your website. I know they were quite impressed with the resources and support it offered. Keep up the amazing work!"

"I have only looked at one link on your website and I am SO thankful that I signed up for a membership!  
 
I am a speech pathologist who works with children with severe autism at one of the elementary schools I'm assigned to.  I can't wait to find creative ideas and lessons to use with my students!  I was running out of ideas so I  can tell that your website will help rejuvenate me. 
 
Thank you!!!  Thank you!!"

"I would like to thank you so much for your web site... My grandson is autistic and after three years in the school system, we have seen some strides forward, but as he gets older they are mainstreaming him more and more without the help of an aide.  We have spoke to the district repeatedly and are not getting very much response from them...so my daughter has made the decision to home school.  Your site is very good, comprehensive and a God send. Thank You!!!

"You are always so kind to make me feel like I am getting MORE than I paid for. Autism Inspiration actually makes me feel like I am getting something and you care.  Not just that you got my money and don't need to worry about my needs or questions."
