Designed by Dr. Jeff Bradstreet for parents and child carers, Open Windows Essential Training™ brought together a wide variety of resources for parents of children with autism. Many courses address only one aspect of autism and seem to ignore the very helpful contributions from other disciplines. The unique Open Windows Essential Training course combines medical researchers, behaviorists, parents and clinicians in an interactive learning experience, designed to educate and equip you for the challenges presented by autism and related disorders including Autism, Asperger Syndrome, ADD and ADHD.

Information presented in Dublin has been used to successfully treat up to 80% of the 1800 children treated to date.
