AHSS Family Support Coordinators Laura Perisin and Wanda Malone got the amazing opportunity to attend a presentation by Dr. Temple Grandin in the front row! Not only that, Laura was able to step up to the stage and ask Dr. Grandin: “What do you feel about ABA therapy and did you have ABA therapy?”
She responded that she had gotten that type of therapy, though it wasn’t called ABA at the time. She then stressed the importance of getting ABA therapy young and getting at least 20 hours a week from an effective teacher to have the best outcomes. You can watch her full answer in the video below.
Laura and Wanda ended the day with a book signing, pictures and more discussion. Laura sums up the experience: “We were truly inspired by her courage and honesty.”
Thank you for sharing your experience ladies!
