Today on Autism Live: Dr. Adel Najdowski shares information on Early Intervention, what it looks like, what the expectations are…etc.  Shannon shares a moment of truth about Autism that came during a 9/11 ceremony she attended with a group of children on the Autism Spectrum. Dr. Jonathan Tarbox answers viewer’s questions about what to do if your speech therapist is recommending PECS, how to help an adult on the spectrum who is unwilling to practice his coping skills, what to do when a non verbal child won’t stop screaming and what to do when your child is oppositional with just one of your therapists.
