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:

00:29 My son is going through a stage of dropping things in the toilet. I don't know what to do.
13:06 My 5-yr-old is having a lot of behavior in the classroom. What can I do to reduce it?
19:37 Why is it most ABA companies only focus on behavior aspects and not teaching skills like CARD? I thought insurance paid for it because it covers the whole concept. Could you please clarify?
34:46 My 8-yr-old son recently began playing with his poop and even tasting it. Why now? It's freaking me out!
45:52 Does puberty have a role in anxiety because of hormones?
