Answers by Expert:
I am an autism expert and speech pathologist (for over 30 years). I am also the parent of a child with autism. I can answer any question on autism dealing with communication, education, behavior and diet. I cannot answer questions that are medical in nature or are dealing with medications.
I have ran a therapy center for individuals with autism until 2008. I lecture all over the country. I am a writer on the subject of autism. I also teach classes on autism on line to students and other speech pathologists.
