Welcome to Lisa Domican’s page on CATTS Online Training.

Lisa is co-creator of Grace App and mother of Liam and Gracie Domican who both have autism. As a parent, Lisa has had 14 years experience of raising her children with autism and has been attending courses and studying evidence based interventions for the last 10 years. As a mother, Lisa fought to understand her initially non-verbal son Liam, and learned to interact with him using the things he liked most. It was the introduction of a simple picture exchange system that prompted Liam to begin imitating and attempting to say the words on the cards he used to make requests.

Having created and launched The Grace App on iTunes in March 2010, Gracie’s personal communication development has improved vastly through consistency of use, and the ability to control her own vocabulary by taking and adding pictures via the app.

"I learned that it is acceptable for a child to want to ‘escape’ from a situation. That we as educators must take a better look at what is going on, at what the child wants to escape from and why. I learned that it is acceptable to make a ‘safe zone’ within the classroom with cushions etc as a private spot for the child to recharge."
