About the Program


The Project ImPACT program uses a step-by-step intervention guide with strategies, techniques, and activities designed specifically for parents and caregivers of young children (under age 6) who have delays in social communication, such as children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.


The program is designed to be completed in:

  • 90-120 minute sessions
  • 1-2 times per week 
  • 12-weeks (24 sessions total)
  • In-home or a mix of virtual (online) and in-home
  • Structured method of training within each session: 
    1. learn a new strategy
    2. see the strategy demonstrated
    3. practice the strategy with your child, and
    4. receive feedback on your practice
  • Use of 'Practice Plans' created together to effectively implement the strategy between sessions with your child, including a review of your practice and problem-solving during the next session

About the Coach


Carrie Walls-Suarez, BCBA, COBA has been in the field of positive behavior change and family training since 2003 when she was first introduced to Applied Behavior Analysis. She immediately fell in love with the science of behavior and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2012, founding Amaze Behavior Therapy the same year in response to the growing need for quality ABA therapy in Cleveland, Tennessee. Years later, Carrie moved her company to Ohio in order to be near family and then moved Amaze from the Dayton area to Warren County at the end of 2020.


In 2021, Carrie decided to shift from offering full ABA programming to clients and instead focus on her true passion: equipping and empowering parents and caregivers to be their children's primary teachers and therapists. She received additional training in Project ImPACT, a program she had been using for several years, and re-launched her company with a this new mission of helping parents and caregivers become knowledgeable, confident, competent teachers in their children's lives.
