As a third year teacher I thought I could handle anything coming my way. But signing up for Nikki's membership was the best choice I made. I have so much more time on my hands now and I love being able to access so many new resources each month. It's the best quality membership I've found for special education and I intend to be a lifelong member!

David Jones

As a new teacher, I was feeling overwhelmed with starting the new year with my classroom. I had 7 students, all of whom were diagnosed with autism. My teaching degree really didn't give me enough training to prepare me - but Nikki's course did! I can't recommend this course enough.. It has everything you could need to really feel comfortable and knowledgeable in your classroom role. I recommend it to both new and veteran teachers - there is something for everyone in there.

I came across Nikki's task box library one day on her social media account. I decided to sign up for 1 month and just see. 10 months later and this is still a membership that I'm so excited to log into each week! There are so many task boxes on there and she is always adding more. She is saving me so much money, but also time as well. I used the training guide included in the membership to give to my paraprofessionals to help them understand what we're doing and they loved it. Highly recommend!

I have been a member of the Teaching Autism Membership for over 3 years now. I pay annually because it's such a good deal and all my colleagues have ended up signing up too after me showing them how much is included in there! I love all of the resources but also the sensory story scripts - my students LOVE story time now.. Whereas they used to hate it. This has been a huge life changing resource. Thank you!

Victoria Haunton

Nikki's enthusiasm for teaching is infectious. I love that she is an educator who is still encouraging others to love being in the classroom with students too. I was started to get stressed and burned out with school.. This is my 12th year! But Nikki @ Teaching Autism has really helped to turn this around. I took her online training which really did teach this old dog some new tricks.. And then I signed up for the VIP membership and ever since.. My life has been a breeze! Thank you Nikki for giving me back more time but also helping me to continue to love teaching.

I met Nikki when she came to my school to give me some supports with a student who was struggling to come in. Nikki is a wealth of knowledge and is amazing at thinking outside of the box and really trying to get a full picture of students. After her visit, our principal signed the whole school up for her online training and it's still one of the most talked about and recommended trainings in our school staff room. Thank you Nikki for providing such a helpful and fulfilling online training that really has made such a huge difference to my teaching and classroom environment.
