About Us:

STAGES® Learning Materials is dedicated to creating quality teaching tools to help educators provide the best learning opportunities for students on the autism spectrum

STAGES was founded by a UCLA trained ABA Therapist in 1997, when autism diagnosis first began to rise. Our top-selling autism education product, the Language Builder Picture Cards, was designed to specifically meet the learning needs of the individual with autism. The Language Builder Series has become a staple in home and school programs throughout the world. Today STAGES offers a full range of award-winning real photo products for autism education, special needs, and pre-school education.

Our innovative new Language Builder: Academic Readiness Intervention System (ARIS) can now be found in pre-schools, day care centers, early childhood classrooms, autism programs, speech language programs, and homes around the world. Based on the principles of ABA therapy, and adapted for the classroom, ARIS combines the trusted Language Builder Picture Card sets with 3D manipulatives, detailed lesson plans, black-line masters for various activity sheets, a system for record-keeping, and custom home communication forms, for the most complete early autism education curriculum available today.
