Autism expert Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh joins Shannon for a special episode of Ask Dr. Doreen. Ask Dr. Doreen is a weekly live segment where viewers can ask questions of one of Autism's leading experts. In this episode Dr. Doreen answers the following questions:


00:17 I'm a 23 year-old with Aspergers and want friends and a boyfriend but don't know what i'm doing wrong. Are there online classes I can take?

04:51 How can I get my husband on board? He thinks our son is fine and will

grow out of this.

16:38 My son is 4, on the spectrum, and when I talk to other people he points at them and says, "Stop talking to my Dad!" Why does he do that?

26:56 Did your children ever tantrum and how did you deal?

36:39 Do children who aren't speaking at a young age ever recover?

41:02 How do I get my son to stop movie or self talk?

47:43 I'm mad that my child has autism and doesn't speak. I'm furious that we had to fight for services. I'm terrified to think what would have happened had we not gotten ABA. What does it take to change the equation?
