'By Your Side' Podcast Interview

BY YOUR SIDE – Autism Therapy Services (BYS) podcast is an interview show featuring open and honest conversations with therapists, parents, educators, authors and experts from the autism community. BY YOUR SIDE provides therapeutic services in three different environments (in-center, in-home, school-based) in Northern IL offering ABA, Speech and Occupational Therapy.

In this interview, I discuss:

  • My application for the iPad called, “I Can Have Conversations With You!™”

  • Conversation vs. Communication, Speaking vs. Understanding

  • What parents and doctors are quick to dismiss.

  • Theory of mind.

  • What hasn’t changed in 20 years with children and autism.

I truly appreciate their invitation to have me as their guest :)

Upon completion, you'll instantly receive a detailed report of your child's current communication strengths and weaknesses. Over time, you can make new assessments (as often as you'd like) to monitor her or his progress.


Easy-to-follow and so necessary!
