What are the advantages of the parent-led approach to ABA therapy?
My guest this week is Amy Jacobs Schroeder, mom of five, and Founder of Happy Ladders. Happy Ladders is a play-based skills curriculum, community, and coaching platform created to empower parents of children with developmental needs, including autism. Amy spent the last two decades providing in-home autism services to families, the latter half focused solely on a parent-led model through her own agency before creating Happy Ladders.
Amy and I have a conversation about the benefits of the parent-led approach to ABA therapy.
She’s also the author of the Parent-Led Revolution (parent-led.com).

Amy started in the field of ABA or Applied Behavior Analysis in 1996 and worked in the field of early autism treatment for many years. She climbed the ladder from tutor to consultant, supervisor, and program director, earning my BCaBA along the way.
