“I love this program! At first I was a bit skeptical that it would be manipulative, but it actually is very compassionate and respectful. This program is so easy to follow. It is structured in a way that really helped me learn not only what to do, but how to do it in small bite-sized chunks so that each layer adds another dimension of parenting skills. The concrete examples make it easy to grasp how to apply these skills in a real situation. When I was stressed, it was easier to revert to whatever was in my existing toolbox, even when it was inappropriate. Mark, your style of teaching made it very simple to skill-up and to implement new strategies even when I was feeling overwhelmed by the enormous responsibility of parenting an Aspergers adult child.” ~ Cameron L.
“Mark – I bought your course two weeks ago. Let me tell you that you are my hero! I have a son who is nearly 23 and still living in my house, and he was driving me crazy to the point where I thought I failed as a father. I’m only on page 12 of your ebook, and my son is changing in front of my eyes. Your strategies really work, and to my surprise, when I tested them on my other son who does not have Aspergers – they work too! Thank you very much. You have changed my son and my life on the whole.” ~ Thomas A.
“I have a 22-year-old Aspergers son who is going on 14. I was ready to pull my hair out and was tired of him telling me what to do and tired of yelling at him in return. Then I came across your course, which was heaven sent. I saw improvements after the first lesson. It was a miracle. I was waiting for him to fight back and then there was nothing. The conflict was resolved. Wow! He now has a part-time job and is taking 3 classes at Ivy Tech. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” ~ Rachael T.
“I am a qualified child care worker with 20 years of experience in both Australia and the United Kingdom. This course has been very valuable to me in my work. I learned many new ways of interacting with the young adults I come in contact with. The strategies were easy to implement and gave me amazing results in just a few days. I highly recommend this course to parents and carers who regularly work with older teenagers preparing for launch into adulthood.” ~ Carl W.
“You truly have taken the essence of communication and broken it down into bite sized chunks that anyone can learn. I will be recommending this program to everyone I know that has an Aspergers teenager. I just want to thank you for your help.” ~ Melinda P.
“My husband I both read your course and loved it. We found the techniques very useful, and now our son doesn’t fight with us to get up and go to school. Also, he has found part time employment at our local YMCA. We are both teachers and found the tools you teach in this course very helpful in our jobs as well. We would recommend this program to anyone who deals with older teens who severely lack motivation.” ~ Sara & John H.
“I am a grandmother who is often helping co-parent a 17-year-old grandson with Aspergers. I have applied your first lesson and was absolutely delighted with the results. I was chuckling to myself, as my daughter is not aware that I had purchased your program. My grandson is fascinated with magic at the moment, so I felt like I had performed a little magic myself! I will certainly persevere with your techniques and keep you posted on our progress.” ~ Wanda D.
“My Aspergers daughter has expressed an interest in going to USC when she graduates later this year, and she is working at McDonalds in the evenings 3 days a week. What a surprise to me, because just last month (before I had tried your techniques), she was only interested in watching movies and reading about all her Hollywood movie stars. What a difference a month makes! Thanks your wonderful advice. I wish we had this information last year.” ~ Rodney S.
“My Aspergers son is 20 going on 10 and is very ADHD too. We were beginning to believe he had a terminal case of laziness disease, and that he did not have a conscience. The first week was tough, we had to keep a "log" of consequences just to keep track, but we stuck to it and never got argument one; the change is DRAMATIC!!!! He is like a new person!!! He used to do nothing but hibernate in his room and tear apart electronic gadgets – then put them back together again. Now he is learning to be an electronic technician at Richmond Area Technical Vocational School. Thank you, Mark, for giving us some direction.” ~ Becca H.
“I think parents with adult children living at home will be amazed at how quickly these methods trigger behavior modification. After just one week, my cunning 24-year-old quickly understood exactly what the new expectations were. More importantly, he realized that discipline would be objectively and consistently dispensed if he did not follow through with these expectations, which were stipulated in a contract that we drafted. Great program. Please keep up the good work.” ~ Aden L.
“I believe teaching your older children how to recognize what they want and how to set goals to achieve what they want is the most valuable lesson you can give them to become successful in life. These skills are not taught enough in our schools today. The Launching Adult Children With Aspergers Guide is an absolute excellent ebook for parents who want to help their Aspergers teenagers begin to take responsibility for their own destiny.” ~ Karin G.
“It was great to be reminded of how important goal setting is - at any age! I found this guide not only inspiring, but a great opportunity for parents and older teens to work on goal setting together. My 18-year-old Aspergers daughter really enjoyed visiting various colleges that she was considering attending. Becoming familiar with the well-researched material before starting helped me to make the process flow. Thank you very much for this information.” ~ Julie B.
"Hi Mark - Hey, thank you sooo much for this information. You truly are THE expert. Before I found your guide, I tried very very hard to motivate my son to do something - anything - other than sit on the coach and watch TV. And it seemed the harder I tried, the lazier he got. But since we have been using your methods, he has obtained a driver's license, is working part time with his (much older) brother doing construction, and going part time to Ebbertts Technical Vocational School. You have been a life-saver!" ~ Heather M.
"I thought I had tried everything, and honestly I gave up! My husband and I were even considering building an extra room onto the house and turning it into an apartment for our 'almost 30-year-old' Aspergers son. We assumed we would be taking care of him for the rest of his life. But by the grace of God, we stumbled on your website, and out of a sense of desperation, immediately began using your approach. Amazingly, within about a 2 month period, our son found a job where he is getting paid to train as an appliance repairman. He really loves his work and has an incredible boss who has really taken our son under his wing. We are truly blessed by this whole experience. Thank you for your advice. We have really turned a corner now." ~ Sandy L.
"My child with Asperger Syndrome is only 16, but I wanted to get started early with helping him plan for his future. I really do not want to have an adult child living at home... still needing me to loan him money, do his laundry, pick up after him, and so on. So he has certain assignments based on the techniques in your book. This week, for example, he is to research online what types of careers are available in the Marine mammal field (he's fascinated with dolphins). Thanks for getting us started in the right direction Mark." ~ Ms. Shubert
