Ethan’s story – Breaking the autism glass ceiling is a video that has provided hope and inspiration to
families in over 85 countries.
The theme of the video is hope and inspiration and we are
trying to show parents of autistic children that there is a way not matter what
the experts say.
The number of children being diagnosed with autism is
increasing at an exponential rate. Currently 1 out of 50 boys are diagnosed with
autism. I am one of those parents who have been living with a boy with autism
for 17 years. Through the years, we have recorded our nonverbal autistic son
Ethan’s journey, and now we would like to share it with you!
Many parents of children with autism have been told by the experts that the best outcome they can hope for is an adult group home for their
child. It is for these parents that we created this video full of hope and
inspiration. Ethan was one of these children, told by the “experts” after
conventional methods did not seem to be working, that Ethan would never read,
write, or do ordinary academics. Ethan has proved them wrong! Through hard work, patience, and an alternative teaching strategy that begins with believing the child can learn and thinking outside the “conventional” box, Ethan has learned what was deemed impossible.
We are asking that you take a minute out of your day to view
our video and forward it to as many of your contacts as possible, in order to
reach the parents who need it most. As a non-profit dedicated to educating
children with autism, we are trying to send them a message of
We started the process 8 years ago and only now have we begun
to publish “How To” videos in order to train others on the successful techniques
that we have developed.
About Ethans story
Ethan is a 17-year-old nonverbal boy with autism and verbal
apraxia. At the age of 10, the experts said he would never read, write, or do
math. Here at the Alternative Teaching Strategy Center, we firmly
believe that these children do have the mental capability to learn, and by
teaching these kids as if they can learn and are smart, they will
learn. Today, Ethan is doing advanced math including algebra. His
reading comprehension is amazing, his handwriting is legible and improving
daily, and he types 65 words a minute independently.
Thank you in advance for your time and support and please
forward our message of hope!
