"It's my vision that we autism parents learn how to teach our children the productive skills that will increase their quality of life and our family happiness. TAGteach is the most efficient and effective tool available to us; there is nothing else like it. We parents must act. No one is going to do more for our kids than we are." - Martha Gabler
I am on the Autism Spectrum. I’m both high and low functioning but have achieved a level of integration in neurotypical society because of my higher functioning attributes. It has been a difficult path to walk alone though. If TAGteach had been around when I was a child, I am 100% sure that I would have a had an even more successful, less frustrating, anxiety ridden childhood and been a higher achiever than I currently am. If you have any doubts about the validity of TAGteach, just try it, and you will see how amazing and how simplified the learning is through using TAGteach.
This is a 5 part course based on topic suggestions from autism parents, taught by Martha Gabler. The focus is on HOW to teach children using the science-based and research-validated TAGteach method.
This course contains numerous examples and video demonstrations as well as opportunities for you to practice your observation and tagging skills with video and with your own child.
There are lots of optional quizzes and exercises throughout the course to help you cement your new knowledge. There are many homework assignments with sheets for you to fill in to help you structure your teaching and keep track of your child's progress.
The course includes access to recorded Q&A sessions and access to periodic live Q&A sessions with Martha and TAGteach co-founders (as available). These will give you the opportunity to ask Martha your questions and to talk to other parents and professionals who are taking the course.
This course represents the thousands of dollars and hours that Martha devoted to going to conferences, seeking out experts, reading books, and experimenting with programs to figure out what worked and what didn't. You don't need to spend a lot of money and waste precious time on trial and error to find a practical way to increase behaviors that benefit your child and your family. Martha has created this course to show you exactly how to teach your child by breaking your teaching into small pieces and using immediate, effective positive reinforcement.

TAGteach has been the only thing that has made a real positive difference to my daughter's progress. TAGteach is the unrivaled champion of our household and all this we learned from Martha Gabler's website and book Chaos to Calm, TAGteach International and the TAGteach for Autism Online Course. Before we started using TAGteach we felt at a loss and our beautiful little girl seemed lost to us. We struggled to reach her. No matter how hard we tried our daughter couldn't even cope with a cuddle or give eye contact. Then we discovered TAGteach and things slowly and surely started to change. We learned how to prepare our daughter for blood tests. We learned to teach her to feed herself. We taught her to give eye contact. We learned to help her take control whilst having meltdowns. There are great many things that we and our daughter have learned via the aid of TAGteach and this wonderful science of helping. Our previously non-verbal daughter's favourite phrase is "Look what I can do!" She's not only walking, but running and laughing and teasing us. She's still disabled, but she enjoys life and loves to learn. You don't have to take my word for it. In fact I would suggest you try it and see for yourself.

Q9: Why is TAGteach Not Used More Often in ABA Programs? (A: because they are just learning about it - it is becoming more and more commonly used)
Are you uncomfortable or frustrated with physical prompting methods that take away your child's autonomy and right to give consent, and often don't really result in long term behavior change?
Surely if this method of teaching is powerful enough for surgeons in one of the most elite teaching hospitals in the world, it's good enough for you and your child?
