Dr. Mary Barbera

Mary Lynch Barbera, Ph.D., RN, BCBA-D, “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 best selling author. 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.


Mary’s second book, Turn Autism Around®: An Action Guide for Parents of Young Children with Early Signs of Autism is now published, as of March 30, 2021 with Hay House. This book with the foreword by Dr. Temple Grandin, empowers and helps parents turn things around for young children with language and social delays, or who have difficulty with excessive tantrums, sleeping, eating a variety of foods and potty training. With 1:6 children having developmental disorders and approximately 1:50 being diagnosed with autism, this new book will help millions of parents, grandparents, caregivers and early intervention professionals with step-by-step strategies.
