“My biggest challenge is supporting my child
whose emotions can be a roller coaster.
He can get very upset which makes me upset
and then I lose my patience and yell
or do something to make it worse
and we both feel awful.”
I absolutely love the Make it Stick parenting philosophy. My son has lots of sensory and emotional needs and I found myself getting easily frustrated and felt like I should know how to respond because I work in education. I realized that I shouldn’t be so hard on myself and when I have more self compassion and patience, I can take a step back and see that it’s a process and I can lean on the model provided in the course to guide me. There is not a “quick fix” and “not one strategy.” It’s a combination...and having a pathway by trusted experts is so helpful."
Now, you might be thinking to yourself
“Uh, who is ‘we,’ exactly?”
Hi, I’m Elizabeth Sautter, and for more than 20 years, I’ve been helping children find their voices, both figuratively and literally. Since 1996 I’ve been many things: a speech and language pathologist/social cognitive specialist/coach, the Co-founder of Communication Works, author of the book Make Social Learning Stick… but my most fulfilling role has been as a mother. Before I had children, I thought that my personal and professional experience was going to equip me with all the tools and strategies needed to raise healthy, happy, well-adjusted children.
But, what I discovered was that when things got more tricky, the tools stopped working. My boys were pushing me away. It wasn’t until I took some time to reflect, and started practicing mindfulness that I began to understand the need for a stronger foundation for implementing the strategies I knew could work. I realized that I was coming from a place of fear and control and when I practice mindfulness and self compassion, I can approach parenting with intentionality, which in turn MAKES THE strategies STICK! I needed to bring together the knowledge that I had with that underlying philosophy.
Hi, I’m Dr. Rebecca Branstetter. When I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2004 I was lucky enough to already know what I wanted to do next. See, I’ve always been passionate about helping children, especially those with additional needs. And I’ve learned that in stressful times, a child will be protected if they are connected. So, to connect with as many students as I could, I became a school psychologist. 16 years later, I’m an author, teacher, and the founder of the Thriving School Psychologist Collective™, a training course and support system that enables hundreds of school psychologists across the country to serve thousands of families.
I’ve made it my special mission to help thousands of additional needs and special needs families navigate the obstacles of emotional and behavioral learnings, equipping them with practical strategies that actually work.
We’re not just friends (but we’re that, too).
Being able to geek out together about science, data, and our real-life experiences as parents has been transformational for both of us … as therapists, and as moms. Now, we’re elated to share what our research shows is effective, and how you can model it to your children to build their self-regulation, social communication, and executive functioning skills.
We know this program can help you, and we are so pleased you’re here to learn about it.
In addition to our free parent training…

What separates us from other parenting programs?
- Our course is specifically designed for children with anxieties, sensitivities,
big emotions or other complex needs.

We pulled from our own research and other top experts in the field.
"In watching the first module, I was really struck by how this work can benefit my relationship with “the other child”—the non–special needs child—who so often feels second best. Being intentional in our interactions with that child, giving my daughter my full, undivided attention is actually quite hard most of the time. Love, love love the parenting journal—mine is already scribbled in. Also really loved the way the process walks us through self care, step by step."
