Developmental delays and signs of autism usually show up before 18 months of age, yet children are often not diagnosed until they are 4 or 5 years old.
In Turn Autism Around®, Dr. Mary Barbera explains why parents can’t afford to worry and wait in long lines for evaluations and treatment while not knowing how to help their children.
She empowers parents, caregivers, and early intervention professionals to regain hope and take back control with simple strategies to dramatically improve outcomes for their children.
Dr. Barbera has created a new approach to teaching kids with developmental delays that uses the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) married with a positive, child-friendly methodology that any parent can use–whether or not their child has delays–to learn to teach communication skills, socialization strategies, as well as tackle sleep, eating, potty training, and behavior challenges in a positive, effective, and lasting way.
“fell” into the autism world in the late 1990s when her first-born son Lucas started showing signs of autism.
Over the past two decades, Mary has transformed from an overwhelmed and confused parent to a doctoral-level Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA-D) and the author of The Verbal Behavior Approach: How to Teach Children with Autism and Related Disorders.
Mary is an award-winning international speaker, podcaster, and online course creator.
Her mission is to help parents and professionals turn autism (or signs of autism) around for millions of children around the world.
