We started Alternative Teaching Strategy Center four years ago to show and teach people that there are alternatives to teaching children with autism. Over the years we have had much success, but every once in a while you have a student that has so much joie de vivre, that you are compelled to share their story.

    Paige is a 13 year old beautiful and intelligent girl with autism and verbal apraxia. Within 7 short months she has made remarkable academic progress and improved her ability to communicate. She has been taught using the same methods used to teach Ethan and has benefited from Visual Communication Analysis. She has a great personality and a real love of learning. Over the short time span that we have known her, everyone at ATSC has fallen in love with her. I want to thank the teachers at ATSC for their devotion to our special kids and a special thanks to the hard work and dedication of her mother. We all know that because of her dedication she will continue to make huge strides.

    Please watch Paige’s Story and feel free to share her story and help spread the message that we should never give up and to show that there are other ways to work with our kids, not just the failing methods that have been used to teach them for years. I wish all our kids much love and success
