The Sun Diagram


This course is free in cost but priceless in it’s application. The concept is simple and you can use it to provide choices visually for someone on the autism spectrum or for anyone!

In this course:

  • A short video describing the sun diagram and how to use it
  • Written information on the use of the sun diagram
  • Information on what level of representation to use with your child (e.g. written words, line drawings, or photos)

Don’t Go Down The Rabbit Hole


This course is also free. This course is for anyone who guides a child or adult who tends to take the lead in conversation, play or behavior. They may do this by starting down a subject path or behavioral response that when you follow, makes you both “go down the rabbit hole” together – reinforcing the interaction so it will keep happening over and over again.

In this course:

  • A short video describing going down the rabbit hole and what to do about it
  • Written information on the concept
