A Mother's Initiative A mother's initiative and desire to help their child can have ripple effects for their child's life. I am excited for you to listen to the podcast episode today and hear about all of the ways Vidya took initiative to help her child and the many things that they have done to support his ability to communicate with others. Our guest, Vidya Banerjee She is a mom of a 15-year-old boy who is on the Autism Spectrum, who was first diagnosed at 3 years of age.  He does not communicate verbally and uses an AAC device to communicate. He has a secondary diagnosis of seizures which is called Landau Kleffner Syndrome. When he was diagnosed at 3, his parents were told he wouldn’t be able to do a lot of things, but he has come such a long way and they feel extremely blessed to have him. When her son was first diagnosed, she didn’t know what Autism even was and says that it felt very overwhelming.  She took huge initiatives and went back to school.  She finished her Autism Graduation certificate and never looked back after that.  In addition to educating herself, she has been involved in her son’s therapies that have included, ABA, speech, OT and many others right from the beginning.  She recently completed Registered Behavior Technician training as well. Recently, she started a blog called www.autismfamilystory.com to help other parents who are on a similar journey.  She also has an Instagram and Facebook account called autismfamilystory where I share information to help other parents. Recommended books: The Verbal Behavior Approach: How to Teach Children with Autism & Related Disorders by Mary Barbera Top 3 takeaways Take the initiative to learn and seek out what your child would benefit from.  Don’t just wait for all of the “systems” to start to help your child.  The consistency with your child is so important. 2.  Try your best to involve yourself in learning from the different therapies that your child is in so you can be consistent at home. Don't forget to take it one day at a time! Set up a communication system for your child if needed.  If your child uses an AAC device, find ways to work it into things you do and model how to communicate for your child.  Also, take time to learn the device so you can make changes with the device.  You can find Vidya at: Her blog at: www.autismfamilystory.com Instagram and Facebook: autismfamilystory
