We love our clients, families, and every professional with whom we have the opportunity to work. And guess what!? They like us too! Here are a few things our wonderful clients have had to say:


“Thank you sweet friend, mentor, and supporter. I can’t thank you enough for your guidance in our session yesterday. You were perfect and I feel very supported.  I feel so blessed to have you in our lives, Barb!”

-D, Parent of 12 year old


“I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your ongoing support and all your efforts for our son since we first met you. We’ve been able to look back and understand our son ever more clearly because of our meetings with you.

You have personally lifted us through some really tough times; You are an incredible blessing to us and we are sincerely grateful.”

-C & K, Parents of adult son


“I started to see my husband in a different way, which helps me.
(my son) is a mellow, reserved guy and seldom gets upset with me while my husband does.
It’s been a great stress for me and I felt as if I were stupid or incompetent since I get stressed just from communicating with my husband who I’ve been married to for more than a quarter of a century. I felt nobody understood the reason why.”

-K, parent of adult son


“There is no other autism consultant in the world who has the same depth of personal experience as Ms. Avila and who is able to develop and action intervention and developmental programs for both our son and his family.”

“So glad to have the Synergy team as a wonderful part of our lives!”

Online Courses

“The course is fantastic! I am feeling successful with my study so far. I have been able to pair and build more rapport by keeping things visual.  Thank you so much for implementing your talent and creativity in this affordable way!”

-J, parent of 9 year old


“Synergy Autism Mentorship Online offers great information that can help an individual be themselves while learning how to interact with others and explore their environment in a safe and appropriate manner.”

Workshops and Trainings

I really enjoyed Barb. She was very passionate, experienced, and bright. Also, I really liked the activity where we had the chance to experience sensory overload similar to many children with autism.

I think the training was great.

-Participant of Head Start 2 day workshop, 2018

“Thank you for the amazing parent workshop.  I learned a lot and really liked being able to form a community with the other parents.  I can see my son being challenged and growing through our focused activities – having fun and starting to connect.  I’m loving the structure and support of a system and community. And this is the most my husband has ever been involved in therapy at home.  Thank you for the support, encouragement, and insight that’s making all of that happen.”
