Today on Ask Dr. Doreen, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh answers questions about Rhett's Syndrome, diagnosing Autism according to the DSM 5 and what it means for those who have already gotten the diagnosis from the DSM IV.  The revolutionary Skills® BIP Builder is discussed, Dr. Granpeesheh shares how this tool can create effective behavior intervention plans efficiently.  Toilet training, teen years and challenging behavior questions are also answered.  During  Let's Talk Autism with Shannon & Nancy the ladies welcome Andrew Duff and amazing young playwright and performer who was diagnosed with Autism as a child and, in his own words "got better" thanks to early intervention and hard work.  Andrew's one man show "Where Are We Now?" takes a poignant look at what "getting better" looks like, all of the blessings and all of the angst that comes with it.  The ladies also discuss recent blogging controversy involving the The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism and some of the incorrect press circulating about Jenny McCarthy and her son's diagnosis.
