What We Do

Different Roads to Learning is your one-stop shop for autism spectrum resources and teaching materials! With over 600 products, our carefully curated product line supports the social, academic and communicative development of children on the autism spectrum through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Verbal Behavior interventions.

Why We Do What We Do

Different Roads to Learning was founded by mom and entrepreneur, Julie Azuma. When her daughter was diagnosed with autism, Julie became aware of just how hard it was to find the right teaching tools for her daughter. Determined to fill this void, Julie hoped to help other struggling families by hand picking the best autism intervention products available and offering them in one place.

Who We Are

Our small team could not be more dedicated to empowering ASD students, as we are all family members or researchers who have worked with individuals on the spectrum. We believe that the most important and fulfilling part of our jobs is making children on the spectrum feel like they belong and are excited to learn!

"The materials I have bought from Different Roads have helped my students develop social skills, improve their language and reduce some very challenging behaviours such as biting, screaming and lashing out."

"Different Roads has shown me wonderful articles that I can apply both in and outside of the classroom. They benefit all functions of students anywhere on the spectrum, that other sources don't attend to as much. These activities and products are so beneficial to my students and I love getting my email from this website every day!"
