A 5-Year-Old North Dakota Girl Overcomes Autism with Use of Skills®, an Online Autism Curriculum
Date:7/29/2013

Grand Forks, N.D. (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

Five-year-old Maddy Robinson is the newest face of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders' (CARD) “Mission Possible: Portraits of Hope” online video series that highlights the personal journeys, challenges, and successes of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Maddy achieved recovery from autism after early intervention using applied behavior analysis (ABA) led by her parents using the Skills® curriculum. Maddy’s story can be viewed at http://portraits-of-hope.centerforautism.com/.

Skills® was created by researchers at CARD, the world’s largest provider of state-of-the-art, early intensive behavioral intervention for individuals with ASD, in an effort to address the global need for affordable access to an effective and comprehensive autism curriculum. The online program is based on the principles and procedures of ABA, an empirically-supported treatment, and is designed to be both comprehensive and easy to use, increasing treatment effectiveness to produce positive results for every child.

Maddy was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and began using Skills® at two-and-a-half years of age. Now, after receiving 30 hours per week of intensive ABA-based intervention through her customized treatment program designed by Skills®, Maddy has fully recovered from her diagnosis of autism. Maddy recently entered kindergarten and is considered a social butterfly; making friends wherever she goes.

“When Maddy was diagnosed with autism, there were no ABA providers in the state of North Dakota,” said Maddy’s mother, Janna Robinson. “Thankfully, we found Skills® and knew the intensive ABA method was working when, after just a month into treatment, Maddy reached out and asked to hold my hand.”
