Unlocking Language

Unlocking Language

ASD Unlocking Language is a workbook program that teaches effective language and communication to children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental conditions that affect language. It is designed for children who are say single words and two-word phrases. Upon completion of the program, children are able to understand and talk about past, present, and future events


  • in their home life, such as eating, playing, bathing, and dressing
  • in the outside world, such as visits to the supermarket, a trip to the zoo, and activities at school
  • in simple stories read to them

The program is for children who meet the following criteria:


  • In language—the ability to say at least two words in sequence, either spontaneously or through imitation, such as “go home,” “bye bye,” “want cookie.” These simple behaviors indicate that the child has the perceptual and motor base required for spoken language.
  • In behavior—the willingness to respond effectively to adult guidance. To benefit from language instruction, a child must be able to cooperate in the teaching process.

To benefit from language instruction, a child must be able to consistently cooperate in the teaching process. If this is not yet present, start first with the behavior program Spectacular Bond: Reaching the Child with Autism (http://amzn.to/1fu0WnL).
