Interviews With Professionals To Help Impact The Life Of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder

This section of The Autism Life.com is where a parent, caregiver, or professional will find the various interviews that I’ve conducted. These interviews are with professionals such as in the Feeding Team Interview and are also with parents who been around the block a time or two. The parent interviews involve anything from using augmentative communication to homeschooling to learning how to effectively maneuver through the IEP process with a school district.

We’ve chosen to do interviews with professionals in various areas that impact the life of a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
