You want to unlock your child's potential. We will show you how.
Time and time again, parents from all over the world have shared with us that they simply don’t know what do to help their child, are afraid of what the future may hold and want to make sure they are doing everything they can to unlock their child’s full potential.
This is exactly why we have created “Unlock Your Child’s Potential”; a 3 day comprehensive training for parents of children with autism. This training is designed to give you the tools you need to witness your child:
*Communicate more. Imagine your child expressing his needs, thoughts and feelings with you more fully and easily.
*Become more social and connected. Every parent wants their child to experience the sense of belonging and confidence that comes from having and being a friend and a more engaged family member.
*Develop independence, such as:
-Become toilet trained (Yes, it is possible!).
-Expand his diet (good bye pizza, hello peas!).
-Have healthy sleeping habits (finally put an end to sleep deprivation for you and your child).
*Be more calm and flexible so you can spend less time putting out fires and create more harmony in your home.
*Feel good about himself and have more moments of happiness, confidence and ease.
Plus, you will:
*Learn how to more fully delight in your relationship with your child.
*Experience the energy and support of a community of parents who understand what it’s like to have a child with autism.
*Gain the confidence and clarity that comes from knowing how to best help your child.
Who this training for?
This training is for you, if you are a parent who:
Feels that your child is just not making the kind of progress you know he is capable of in his current school or therapies.
Is desperate to know what to do to help your child more.
Would love to deepen your relationship with your child.
Wants to prioritize your child’s happiness and positive sense of self.
This training is not for you if you are parent who feels that your child is growing to his optimal capacity in his current school or treatment program or if you feel that you are not ready or available right now to implement the strategies you will learn.

What Parents Have to Say...
"Through Sean Fitzgerald’s help and guidance – here we are today, a happy family! Out of the depths of despair and worry for our special child’s future we achieved a miracle! A boy who is interacting with us and HIS friends. A boy who is fully engaged in his environment. A boy who was non- verbal at 3 and now has age appropriate language and expressive skills. A boy who entered mainstream school and surprised his teachers. As I join other mum’s on the soccer field watching my son play, I am grateful for the path that led me to you Sean!"
-Irini & Ari, proud parents of Evan (9) &Lucas(6), Australia
"Your seminar has been life changing! It’s completely shifted my focus away from behaviour and onto the better aspects of being a parent, like playing and having fun. I thought I was a good mother before, but now I’m a kick-ass mother and my house has never been so happy!"
-Jacquelyn, mother of Noah (9)
"Absolutely fantastic! Full of useful and helpful information".
-Nilissa, Mother of Sophia and Olivia (5 year old twins )
"Since we began working with Tali, our daughter has made incredible changes. She is crying and having tantrums much less and is participating in games with us much more. She is now using 2-3 word combinations, is initiating physical affection with her siblings and father AND she is fully toilet trained. We are so thrilled with her progress!"
-Bec, Mother of Bella (6), Australia
"Making the decision to work with Tali was one of the most important steps we took in Kilian´s pathway to recovery. He is now eating a much larger variety of foods, is having tantrums much less, is asking and answering more questions and is beginning to tell me about his day! Just the other day Kilian's teacher told me that he 'is like a different child'. This is truly a dream come true."
-Patricia, Mother of Kilian (11), Austria
"The changes we have seen with Antonio since working with Tali have been unbelievable! He is now saying “mama’’ and “papa” and is also showing much more awareness and language comprehension. He is much more cooperative on family outings and really enjoys the time together (instead of running off and crying the whole time). AND, to top it off - Antonio is completely toilet trained!"
-Sal, Father of Antonio (5), Italy
"I have 3 children with autism and all of them have changed in dramatic ways since I began working with Tali. I am literally seeing each child open up before my eyes. We have gone from seeing sporadic and inconsistent changes to seeing new and exciting things with them every day- like increased comprehension, more spontaneous language, less tantrums and increased affection."

Our 3 day training will take place at the 52A dance studio. This inspiring and creative space has been co-founded by parents of a child with autism and is used to offer dance workshops to people of all ages and abilities, including a special dance workshop for people with Parkinson's and the BalletBoyz dance company. We are grateful and excited to host our training in this venue to offer a unique experience to our community.
Below are a list of frequently asked questions and our responses so you can make sure this workshop is right for you.
Section 1: How do I know if this is right for my CHILD?
Q: Is this seminar for children of a specific age?
A: The “Unlock Your Child’s Potential” training has been designed for children of all ages. Whether you have a young child who has just been diagnosed or an older child/adolescent with autism, our training will share powerful tools and strategies to help your child move forward in the areas of communication, interaction and social skills, independent life skills and more.
Q: I know children with ASD communicate at all different levels - who is this training designed to help?
A: Throughout the training we will address how the teachings apply to children at a variety of levels on the autistic spectrum. Specifically, during the language class we will focus on how to help a child say his first words, how to develop two and three word sentences and how to develop and extend back and forth conversations. No matter where your child is now, we will give you the tools to take the next step in his/her communication.
Q: My child hasn’t been officially diagnosed with autism or has a different diagnosis, is this right for my child?
A: This is a very important question and a great opportunity to stress that it is less important what diagnosis your child has and more important what challenges you would like to help your child with. If you would like to help your child grow in communication, interaction and social skills, move through challenging behaviors and develop independent life skills, than this training is for you.
Section 2: How do I know if this training is right for ME?
Q: How much time do I need to commit to doing with my child after the workshop in order to see results?
A: This is a great question and one that really needs to be customized for each child and family. During our training we will help you determine what would be best for you and your child, whether it be a full time home based program, several hours a day/week or strategies that you implement in a more informal way with your child.
Through our extensive experience, ongoing education and collaboration with experts around the world, we both have incorporated a wide variety of additional strategies to help children move beyond their roadblocks and flourish where they were once stuck.
It is with great enthusiasm that we bring this larger scope of knowledge to share with you in our training.
Q: Is this seminar only for parents?
A: Great question and no. This training is useful for anyone who has an active supportive relationship with your child. The majority of the participants will be parents, however we have designed the training so that any family member, team member or professional can learn strategies to help a specific child.
Section 3: Additional Frequently Asked Questions.
Q: I have tried so many programs/treatments and am emotionally and financially spent, how can I know if this is right for me and my child?
