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:

00:16 How do I help my son with depression due to lack friends in middle school?
07:10 My son just started ABA. Will ABA be able to help him catch up on all his delays?
22:33 Are you ever going to be in New Jersey? My son could use your services.
32:56 My daughter is 8. She signs and uses an iPad for communication. She is aggressive towards her little sister (poking her eyes, pinching, etc) which I think is automatically reinforced by her sister crying. What can I do to stop this? I'm worried for my younger daughters' safety.
39:54 I have a little boy, 4, non verbal, who grinds his teeth when he is frustrated or has to do something he doesn't want to. What is a long term fix for this?
