I take what you have taught me and try to share and inspire those around me. I have faith that your reach will continue to grow outwards and I hope you take off like the flu……. Attaching yourself to as many teachers, parents and para’s as possible in hopes they will spread and share your philosophy, joy for the job to help educate school communities in all 50 states!!” – Kelly, from Tennesse
“I found all of the videos very helpful. I really enjoy the independent work systems. I cannot wait to utilize this new information in my classroom. I just can’t wait for the next month. Thanks a million. “ – America

Wonder How the The Autism Helper Came to Be…
Sasha Long, BCBA, M.A., is the founder and president of The Autism Helper, Inc. She is a board certified behavior analyst and for over 10 years she was special education teacher. Sasha now works full time as a consultant, writer, and behavior analyst. Sasha also travels internationally as a speaker and consultant providing individualized training and feedback to parents, educators, therapists and administrators in the world of autism.
“In year 3 of my teaching career I almost left special education. Everyone struggles with something, but that year I felt like I struggled with everything. I couldn’t understand how I could be working so hard and not feeling like I was seeing the big results of that work. This is when I start to turn things around.”
What kind of resources are in the
The Autism Helper Professional Development Membership?
Professional Development Training Videos
Each month, you will receive access to value-packed training videos.
4-8 training videos a month
set up in a short yet actionable formats
content available in audio only, captioned versions, or written transcription
access to these videos for as long as you are a member
These videos create a plan for your classroom. Instead of trying to do all the things at once, focus on doing a few things well and progress from there. These videos give you the steps and training to do that!
Having a team that works collaboratively is essential to success in your special education classroom. However, staff training is barely (if ever!) taught in teacher programs. Managing and leading your team is a skill that can be learned and developed. Each month, learn new strategies on how to work with your staff.
There’s more than meets the eye to well-run special education classroom. The routines, schedules, and visuals have a clear purpose and role. These may not be new concepts to you, but there is always a way to level up how you structure your classrooms. Learn about how to set up your independent work system so it runs all year, how mini schedules prevent problem behavior, and so much more!
Special education teachers have two jobs: educator and curriculum developer. Selecting, developing, and implementing the appropriate educational activities for each of your students is overwhelming (to put it lightly). Planning and organization is key. Set your students up for success by developing effective plans for establishing systems, collecting data, and running instructional groups.
Behavior & Communication
Everything else in your classroom can be perfectly setup but problem behavior can throw it all for a loop. Each month, let’s breakdown the process of causing lasting and meaningful behavior change. From pairing to token economies to replacement behaviors, let’s make Applied Behavior Analysis work in your classroom!
New Resources for you to Choose From Each Month
Every classroom is so different so – of course – the needs of each classroom will be so different! To make sure you get the resources you need, you’ll get 3 credits each month to download digital resources. You can choose from a selection of materials based on the topics of each month. Resources will be available for immediate access and will remain in your Member Dashboard. Credits can also be rolled over if unused!
Get access to a members only Facebook group where we will be collaborating, celebrating, and trouble-shooting together. Sasha will host an exclusive Facebook Live each month to answer questions and brainstorm with members. The Facebook Live will also be recorded and saved for future access.

Here’s what the training and resources offered by The Autism Helper
“As a new teacher, I was a mess. I was overwhelmed and stressed out constantly. A few training sessions, I felt in control and like I had a plan. Sasha helped point me in the right direction and my students and I forever grateful!”
Sasha has benefited me beyond my expectations and has helped me stay focused throughout the roller coaster of emotions that comes with teaching. Her tools and personal engagement has helped transform me from being overwhelmed and stressed, to focused and proactive.
I love your enthusiasm and joy for organization – me too!! I love your positive go-get-em spirit. You seem to have so much energy and it shows. I am not sure how you do it but I am so happy you do.
Sasha worked with me as we broke down students’ behaviors. Her energy and optimism cleared the way for me to build confidence and experience success in the classroom. Sasha is the teacher I would like to become. I appreciate all of her support as I continue to grow in this field.

On the first of each month, the resources will be replaced with the new month’s resources. You will still have access to the resources you have “purchased”. You will also be able to view the training videos over and over again.
How do I cancel my membership?
All memberships will renew automatically based on your subscription plan. If you wish to cancel your membership please complete the Cancellation Request form found on the FAQ at least 7 days before your renewal date, otherwise you will be charged for the following month. Be aware that cancellations are processed IMMEDIATELY.
Once you have canceled you will no longer have access to the Members Dashboard nor any content on The Autism Helper Membership.
Do you offer refunds?

If I have a tech issue, how do I get help?
Most of your questions can be answered in the FAQ section of the site. If that doesn’t address your issue, please contact us at email@example.com
When will I get charged for the membership?
You will get charged for your monthly membership on the monthly anniversary date you signed up on. If you signed up on May 17th, you will get charged on the 17th of every subsequent month.
How can I leave you feedback or ask you questions?
We’d love to hear your feedback and answer your questions. You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give our team a few days to reply.
Can I share one of the resources I got in The Autism Helper Membership with another teacher?
Sorry. The membership price covers the cost for one teacher to use the resources for their own classroom/students. You can not share these products with other teachers digitally or in printed form at all. If you have a teacher friend that would like to get our resources too, you can send them here. https://theautismhelpermembership.com
Do you accept school purchase orders?
How is this different than your TpT store?
This membership is SO much more than access to some digital resources. Resources are a tool and in this membership we will show you the best and most effective way to utilize these tools. The training videos were created specifically for this group. This membership is a hybrid of Sasha’s Professional Development Workshops, a consultation, and the TpT store. Also, we give access to a selection of resources each month to ensure you are getting materials you don’t already have!
Can I receive CEUs for watching training videos?
Yes, you can get 4 CEUs after 4 months of watching the training videos. CEUs will need to be requested after 4 months and are only available at that interval. School districts differ in what they will accept as a CEU. It is up to each member to confirm that CEUs from The Autism Helper, Inc. will be approved by your school district. Sasha Long, BCBA is an Authorized Continuing Education (ACE) provider from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.
