Award Winning Teaching Tools

Individuals with Autism have unique learning challenges, so selection of teaching materials is critical. STAGES Learning Materials was founded by a UCLA trained ABA Therapist in 1997, when Autism diagnoses began to first rise. Our top-selling Language Builder® Picture Cards were designed to specifically meet the learning needs of students with autism. Today, STAGES offers a full range of real photo products for autism education, and the Language Builder series is a staple in home and school programs across the world.

Articles, Research & Reference

We started Stages Autism Resource & Community in 2014 as a response to the regular questions we receive  from parents and educators.  We built a list of all of the inquiries we could remember, and set out to research each one and provide the best answers we could. Over the years we have grown our resource page to offer over 500 articles. All of our content is original, and is researched and written by experts in the field, many of whom are currently or we recently in residence at Harvard Graduate School of Education.
