Who is Project ImPACT designed for?

Project ImPACT is for young children with social communication delays, including autism spectrum disorder. It is designed for children up to age six, but may be used for older children with cognitive and language delays.

Why choose Project ImPACT?

Project ImPACT is evidence-based, supported by 15 years of research and development. The program teaches core communication skills that support learning across all settings. Because this is a caregiver-coaching model, children get more hours of practice in their home and community environment.

As a result of this program, caregivers report feeling more confident supporting their child's communication development. Increasing the number of positive caregiver-child interactions often reduces stress.
