Columbia University Autism Treatment: Scientific Basis

Autism Treatment: BOLD (Behavorial Organization Leading to Development

Made in collaboration with Dr.Suzanne Goh at Columbia University Department of Neuropsychiatry, this video series introduces BOLD Parenting (Behavioral Organization Leading to Development), a program for children on the spectrum.

In 2013, Dr Goh published the book Spectacular Bond: Reaching the Child with Autism with co-authors Dr. Marion Blank (developmental psychologist) and Susan Deland (parent of a child with autism). The book outlines a powerful six-step behavior program for children with autism that is implemented at home by a parent. The program is grounded in the latest research in neuroscience, linguistics, and the psychology of parent-child interactions. Through the program, children can achieve - within weeks - more meaningful social interaction, diminished temper tantrums, greater capacity for self control, and improved attention. When this behavior program is combined with optimal biomedical treatment, meaningful progress is possible in all aspects of development.
