"I have been absolutely amazed by the Turnaround program. The design of the program and the fact that it is children speaking on the CDs is the highlight for me. What better way to help a child through their fears and anxiety than other children! What a fantastic job the creators of Turnaround have done! The program also includes 2 CDs full of wonderful information of parents and a CD with information about the medications to treat anxiety. I cannot recommend this program enough. It is by far the best one I have ever seen or heard of. I give Turnaround a HUGE thumbs up!"

Professionally developed by licensed therapists, this audio treatment program speaks directly to children through a creative camping adventure that features six anxious children who struggle with various forms of anxiety, including Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder(OCD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder(GAD), Social Phobia, Separation Anxiety, and other child mental illnesses related to school stress, parental separation, and childhood fears.The children hear from other children and from a host of imaginary characters that teach them ways to overcome their fears. Autistic children find Turnaround entertaining and easy to understand. It grabs their attention and teaches them effective ways to overcome their anxious fears. Parents of autistic children are thrilled to have an effective resource to reach their special needs children.They write:
“My 11-years-old has high functioning autism and suffered from anxiety before we used Turnaround. How I wished I found your product earlier! My son relates well to the story. Your product helps him to identify his anxieties which basically are false perceptions. However, perceptions are realities to him. Before Turnaround, I could not help him to identify his anxieties. With his new recognition, he learned skills taught to handle anxiety. This is significant because his anxiety level was so high that often I could not even talk to him to comfort him.I have tried different products to help my high functioning autistic son but this is the only one that helped him significantly. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product!”
Another parent writes:
“My seven year old son has high functioning autism and asthma. After suffering from an unusually severe asthma attack this past fall, which ended in the emergency room. After using the Turnaround program, my son is sleeping through the night without panic attacks.These CD's gave me great insight on how to help my son and more importantly to show my son how to help himself. This program is a working tool for parents. I have already recommended this program to the autism specialist at our elementary school and many friends experiencing similar issues. Thank you for making this program. Without this program I would being seeing yet another specialist and making another ER trip and all of which cost more than this program.”
If you have an autistic child who suffers with anxious fears, you owe to him or her, and yourself, to try Turnaround.
