Different Roads to Learning was created in 1995 to meet the needs of parents and professionals working with children on the autism spectrum. Our founder, Julie Azuma, is the parent of a child who was diagnosed with autism at a later age. Professionals suggested many obscure educational materials to assist with her child’s learning that were extremely difficult to find. The lack of a comprehensive resource for materials specifically targeted towards children with ASD was the launching pad for our business. Our mission here at Different Roads to Learning is to help children and their families get the most out of their home and center based programs.

Different Roads to Learning now carries over 600 products carefully selected to support the autism community. On our site, you’ll find everything from basic flashcards, books and timers to advanced social skills tools to support you at every step of your program.

Our blog was created specifically for sharing. Here, we collaborate with trusted professionals and parents to share experiences, concerns, new and exciting products and events and best of all, our collective treasure of information. It is our hope that you will find the information posted here helpful, practical, and interesting and that it will help all of us – especially our children – learn and grow.

And this is just the beginning… We hope that professionals and parents who have advice, information or a story to share will contact us and submit thoughts and ideas for blog posts. We intend for this to be a true community and all who are interested in the education of our ASD children are invited to participate. Please email Hannah at hannah@difflearn.com if you’d like to submit a post for our blog!
