You just can't separate language from culture, and that is what makes this week's episode a must-listen for every practicing SLP, around the globe. Joined by the vibrant voices behind The Bold SLP podcast, Kate and Amy seek to better understand issues related to culture and bilingualism in our ever-changing professional landscape. You might feel pretty lost when it comes to serving culturally and linguistically diverse clients and families, and with good reason. This is, after all, one of the many topics that falls into the “I didn't get this stuff in grad school” column. But don't fret, we're all learning, and the Nerd crew has got you! This episode is packed with real talk, as Ingrid, Liza, and Desi dive into three bold themes that covertly weave themselves into the fabric of your everyday SLP grind - culture erasure, power dynamics, and implicit bias. Tune in to start seriously considering how to approach your assessment process with an entirely fresh perspective that values difference and collaboration. You'll learn about the differences between ethnographic and traditional interview, and how this simple but powerful shift in your clinical paradigm can get you started on the powerful path of better, best practice.

This episode is a celebration and those who accept the autism spectrum are invited. At this party we have a special guest his name is Adam Wheeler. Adam Wheeler has resided in Bloomington his entire life and is a B.S. in Recreational Therapy and M.A. in Speech and Language Sciences graduate of Indiana University in Bloomington. Currently, he works as a speech-language pathologist (SLP) at Clear Creek Elementary School and works as the foundation's treasurer (MCAF). Adam developed an early and natural awareness of autism as a result of growing up in a family that was neurodiverse in every way. After years of misconceptions and incorrect diagnoses, his late father, Philip, received an adult autism diagnosis. Adam's comprehension and awareness of autistic persons and their needs were greatly influenced by Phil's experience and advice. Since Adam's older brother has autism as well, they have had to develop special routines and methods of communication. Adam even frequently plans playgroups for the families he served, a talent he has continued to hone. An adult just serves as a connection point, skill model, and mediator to foster empathy and understanding in these entirely kid-led gatherings. Even while some other STEM activities and board games are employed, current groups tend to focus on LEGO activities . Adam established his own LLC, Celebrating the Spectrum, to further his goal of providing satisfying, effective, and profoundly respectful care for people with autism throughout their lives.

As an SLP-BCBA, collaboration is a really important part of my work. Julianne Trudeau is an SLP and Director of Speech Services at Bierman Autism Center. This center grew from a small in-home provider to a clinic-based therapy center with 17 locations across the country. Bierman operates a Collaborative Service Model in which BCBAs, SLPs, and OTs work together to best serve the child.I've shared many stories in the past about the difficulty I've both seen and experienced with the collaboration between SLPs and BCBAs. Julianne uses an analogy, I love. BCBAs and SLPs are like a married couple, they may not always see eye to eye but they have the same goal at heart. This goal is in the best interest of the child. In collaborating together, BCBAs and SLPs can take a bit from each other to become better, more informed professionals and make the child the most successful as possible at the same time.Bierman Autism Center increases the success of their collaborative service model by embedding opportunities into the schedule. Providers have embedded meetings for communication and collaboration for their cases. They also schedule weekly clinical staff meetings, monthly center staff meetings, and quarterly meetings for centers across the region. Bierman also embeds collaborative training opportunities for staff and parents.Intake a Bierman begins with a family tour led by the center director. During this time services, goals, and collaborative ideas are discussed with the family. This visit will be followed up with an initial assessment and the parents will be provided the opportunity to have their child's ABA supplemented with service from other center providers such as SLPs and OTs. When a family chooses to participate in a collaborative service, each department will assess the child and collaborate and touch base on overlapping areas and goals.

Join us for this interview episode where we talk all things Autism- how to celebrate it, think about it and talk about it in 2022 from a neurodiverse affirming perspective. In this episode, you might notice that we use identify first language, which means we say things like “Autistic person” rather than “person with Autism”. This is inline with what most of the Autistic community has been voicing as they celebrate Autism as part of their identity, something to be proud of and something that can't be taken away from them, if this is new for you, please have an open mind about that. Our goal is to de-stigmatize Autism and celebrate it! Secondly,  you'll hear Andi talk a lot about subtle signs and less common traits of Autism and if you don't have a child with a diagnosis yet or this is something on your mind, know that if you resonate with some things in this episode, it doesn't automatically mean your child is on the spectrum.

A lot of people assume that memory problems happen as we age. That doesn't have to be the case. There's a lot that you can start doing now to keep your mind healthy into your later years. Today's guest is here to tell you how she runs a successful business helping people keep their minds sharp!   About Francine Waskavitz Francine is a Speech-Language Pathologist and an integrative nutrition coach with a passion for helping seniors and older adults maximize their long-term memory and cognitive health. She has always been a bit of an old soul. Francine thinks that's what draws her to work with the older crowd. She feels at home with them! Francine has spent the last 10 years as an SLP working with the 55 and older crowd in care centers around the Carolinas. She truly believes that even though she is the one leading the therapies during that time, she learns even more from her clients than they do from her.   It's Never Too Early to Address Memory Loss Francine explains why memory loss is never normal. Sure, memory will likely change as we age. However, your regular ability to easily recollect things should not be ignored. Francine works hard to dismantle the myth that memory loss and aging must necessarily go together. Francine wants people to seek help as soon as they realize that their memory is getting worse. It's not something to just write off. Early intervention can go a long way to reducing larger problems down the road.   Building and Growing a Health Business We also get into how Francine built a successful business around memory coaching. Much of this she credits to the Nutrition Business Accelerator. Although she is a Speech Language Pathologist, not a dietitian, Francine says she still found a huge amount of value in the program. She learned that building a process around moving clients from a problem to a solution through mindset-building is a winning formula.

How to provide high-quality support for your caseload with the "asset stack" method

Are they 18 yet?â„¢

A lot of your clinical training taught you how to be a good clinician.But often it doesn't teach you how to "work the system" and get your kids what they need.The truth is, you can't make an impact without autonomy over your time, without adequate tools, without the right people, support, and financial resources. In the system you're working in, these things are limited. You may not have enough of these things right NOW to make the impact you want.But you can change that by putting yourself in a more influential position.We can do that using a concept that I called “asset stacking”. In episode 83 of the Are they 18 yet?® Podcast, I share how that strategy works. Using the concepts of "asset stacking", I was able to do things like: ✅Complete my doctorate while working full time as a school SLP, without taking out any student loans.✅Do a pilot study on a speech therapy flex-schedule model, so I could do more classroom observation, consults, and make up sessions.✅Conduct a program evaluation to help develop my districts' RtI protocol (even though I wasn't in an official administrative position).✅Create new extended school-year criteria so an entire cohort of students could access summer services for the duration of their elementary years.✅Start an online education business (focused on serving clinicians) while I was working a full-time job.Most productivity strategies don't work because they don't show you how to "stack" assets and create real leverage.  But when I learned to apply this "stacking" concept to my work, I was able to create some amazing partnerships which led to much more comprehensive and effective services for my caseload.~Dr. KarenP.S. The “asset stack” method is something I teach in a new online training for pediatric clinicians (SLPs, psychs, social workers, and other service providers). It's called “How to provide top-notch support for your caseload using the “asset stack” method (even in a system loaded with constraints)”. You can sign up for this free training here.

Perhaps, more important, I also learned the ineffectual strategies through researching my practice and cut them out, making better use of limited therapy time. Researching your practice will give your clients a voice in letting you know what's effective and what isn't. Their behavior is communication. This is the key to innovating practice: Listen to your clients. This episode walks you through the simple steps to research your practice in the real world today. Details matter.

We'll be discussing Aphasia Access's new online project, Person-Centered Care: The Life Participation Approach to Aphasia Knowledge Course, which debuts this month, I had the pleasure of playing a small role in this project as the narrator for the course.    Melinda Corwin is a University Distinguished Professor and clinical supervisor at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, where she has worked since 1994. Prior to her university position, she worked as a hospital speech language pathologist.

Professor Halliwell is the author of Aphasia and Other Acquired Neurogenic Language Disorders: A Guide for Clinical Excellence, Second Edition.    Thank you for joining me. I wanted to start with an “aha moment,” anything that stands out for you in terms of the Life Participation Approach. Who would like to start?   Melinda Corwin So, at our university, I got to meet a man who was in his 60s, he had survived a stroke two years prior, he was single and living in a long term care facility. He didn't have any family locally. He came to our university community outreach program for people with aphasia. And after about six months of being with us, he confided to his student clinician one day that he wondered if he could work out a payment plan to pay for throat surgery to fix his problems with speech and communication. And we realized that he did not understand the nature of aphasia. He actually thought there was a surgery available to fix or cure it, and that because he was low income, he didn't have the money to afford it.    That was my aha moment, where I realized that we had failed him, our system had failed him. This man deserved to have access to his health information regarding his diagnosis, his condition, his prognosis, and he didn't get that as part of his ability to participate in his life and in his health care plan. And I knew we could do better. And so I found colleagues and friends through Aphasia Access, and I'm really hoping and working towards a systemic change for that reason.    Lyssa Rome Thank you. Brooke, what about you?   Brooke Hallowell Well, I continue to have aha moments. For for me, one that stands out relates to my role as an educator and a person who teaches courses in aphasia and author to support learning and future clinicians who will be working with people who have aphasia. It was hard for many of us who were raised with a focus on medical and impairment-based, deficit-focused models of aphasia, to integrate our appreciation for foci on life participation with how we were taught, and may have previously taught and mentored our students. It's as if, for many of us, the recognition of how essential it is for us to embrace life participation was there long before we had a good grasp on how to integrate life participation holistically into our educational content. We wanted to make sure our students knew about medical, neuroscientific, neuropsychological, psycholinguistic, etc., aspects of aphasia, and we wanted to make sure they knew about the theoretical underpinnings of aphasia-related content. So if you think about what we can cover in a course, in our limited time with future clinicians, we felt and still do just never have sufficient time to delve into some of the really critical life participation content.    So for me it kind of aha moment. Although I gotta say it wasn't. So sudden as a flash at a single moment in time, maybe an aha phase. It relates to the importance of helping current and future clinicians embrace that we all need to be able to hold several conceptual frameworks about aphasia in our minds at the same time, and that by understanding and appreciating multiple perspectives, we didn't have to necessarily choose one over the other. We didn't have to argue about which models were better than others, or whether working on impairment level deficits was somehow not essential to life participation. Once that realization was clear within me, I found that it was easier to integrate life participation and the ICF framework through our all of our discussions and teaching about aphasia and other disorders as well.    Many of us invested in life participation approaches have supported one another in that sort of integration of multiple frameworks in our thinking, and in our work. Aphasia Access has been a powerful force in that regard. The mutual support to hold life participation paramount, no matter what are other theoretical perspectives, and medical or non-medical orientations.   Lyssa Rome Thank you. I think that leads really nicely, actually, into this topic of the knowledge course that that Aphasia Access has developed and that's debuting this month. So can you tell us a little bit more about the project and how it began?   Melinda Corwin The project began with the plight of both people with aphasia and speech language pathologist. Of course, SLPs know that people with aphasia want to participate in life, which means their current life as a patient, or in their life when they go back home and their life years into the future. The plight for speech language pathologists is that they face enormous time limitations, insurance reimbursement constraints, they have increased workload across all the different healthcare systems and settings. And so providing true person-centered care, health equity, and personalized goals for each person that we serve can feel almost impossible.    This challenge was so pervasive that it appeared in a comprehensive report written by Nina Simmons-Mackie in 2018, called Aphasia in North America, and it's available from Aphasia Access. In her report, she listed the gap areas and so we really wanted to focus on gap area number five, which is related to insufficient attention to life participation across the continuum of care. And also gap area number six, which is related to insufficient training and protocols or guidelines to aid speech language pathologists and other health care professionals in the implementation of this participation-oriented intervention across the continuum of care.   So the year that her report came out a team of aphasia clinicians, researchers, and program providers mobilized to invent a product to concretely try to address these gap areas. We wanted to offer busy clinicians and healthcare professionals training that they wouldn't have to travel to, and something that was more than a webinar. We did a lot of research to produce the learning experience, and we tried to provide the most contemporary, interactive learning methods for adults. Our beta testers have said that they have found the course to be different and highly valuable.   Lyssa Rome So I think obviously, there's this big need. And I'm wondering, Brooke, maybe if you could speak a little bit more to how this person-centered care approach can support the goals of increasing life participation, and maybe differentiate a little bit between clinician-centered care and person-centered care for people with aphasia?   Brooke Hallowell  Sure. In clinician-centered care, the clinician is really in charge of all aspects of intervention. The clinician is the boss. The clinician decides what will be assessed and how it will be assessed. The clinician interprets the assessment results. And from that, sets goals for the person with aphasia. And the clinician decides on the treatment methods that will be used to reach those goals. And that's very different from person-centered care, where the person and the clinician are collaborators from the start, they work together to determine priorities for what that person really wants to be able to do in life and how communication affects what a person wants to do.   In person-centered care, the person's priorities are really the primary focus of assessment and goal setting and every aspect of intervention. And the person and the clinician set goals collaboratively, often including other people that are important in that person's life. And together, they collaborate in selecting what goals will get prioritized, and what the context is for working on those goals that's most relevant to the person.    So the person's priorities are at the heart of our work in person-centered care. We clinicians collaborate with the person, and those people who are important to the person, at every stage of goal setting, assessment, treatment planning, etc.   Lyssa Rome So thinking about person-centered care, I'm wondering if you can describe a little bit more about the goals of this knowledge course and how they relate to person-centered care.   Brooke Hallowell Sure, the overarching goal is to provide learners with foundational, verifiable knowledge that's critical for providing person-centered care. Person-centered care is a universal and global need for people who have aphasia, and those who are important in their lives. The Life Participation Approach is fundamental to this wish that clinicians worldwide have for people with aphasia. That's increased participation in life regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, national origin, geographic location, religious or other beliefs—regardless of any individual differences.   This course is the first in a series. The knowledge course consists of eight online, self-paced interactive modules, each of which contains three specific learning objectives. The knowledge course is a standardized way that clinicians—from novices to experienced clinicians—can be formally recognized as a Life Participation Approach professional. When a person successfully completes the course, they earn an eBadge, a certificate, and an optional 2.5 continuing education credits for those who are members of the American Speech Language Hearing Association.    Next year, Aphasia Access will release the second in the series: the practice course. That course will build on the fundamentals of the knowledge course, passing that course will lead to the award of a second badge focused on implementation strategies across care settings. Every course module is designed to provide practical suggestions, graphics, dynamic video clips, and interactive and reflective activities to help key concepts come alive.   Lyssa Rome Tell us a little bit more about the content team. Who worked on this badge project?   Melinda Corwin This is Melinda and it's been an honor to serve as the content team manager for the project. For the knowledge course we had eight members on our team. Our lead author is Nina Simmons-Mackie, who's a professor emeritus at Southeastern Louisiana University. Of course, Brooke Hallowell, who as you said, is professor and dean of health sciences at Springfield College. Brooke also secured a grant to help with funding portions of this project and we could not have done it without her.   And our other team members include Katarina Haley, who is a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and she directs the UNC Center for Aphasia and Related Disorders. Mary Hildebrand is a recently retired associate professor and program director of the occupational therapy department at Massachusetts General Hospital or MGH Institute of Health Professions. Jacqueline Laures-Gore is an associate professor of communication sciences and disorders at Georgia State University. We have Marjorie Nicholas, who's the chair of the communication sciences and disorders department at MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston. And last but not least, our project manager Kathryn Shelley. She is co-founder and current grants director of the Aphasia Center of West Texas, and she's also a former president of Aphasia Access, and this course would not be possible without Kathryn's guidance.   Lyssa Rome Tell us a little bit more about what the benefits are of having this eBadge or taking this course.   Brooke Hallowell Sure, this is Brooke. The badge is going to convey to others that the participant has a firm foundation of person-centered care, which is, as we know, at the heart of the life participation approach. So benefits include delivering equitable, person-centered care through collaborative goal setting and intervention, improving success for people with aphasia, and those who care about them and helping specific care settings meet communication access mandates.   When an eBadge is displayed in an email signature, or on social media, there'll be a clickable link. And that will help employers, or colleagues, or the people that we serve, even friends and family, link to a full description of what it means to have earned that eBadge.   Lyssa Rome Great. Many of the professionals who are involved in Aphasia Access are experts in the life participation approach. So why would they want to take this course to document their knowledge?   Melinda Corwin This is Melinda. Well, by devoting personal time, energy, and resources to earn an eBadge, it's an efficient way to let others know that we share a common goal to provide patient-centered care across the continuum of care. And regardless of what setting a particular professional is in, whether they're in an acute care hospital, inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient rehab, home health, or community-level aphasia program, or group, these eBadge holders will be able to identify each other.   I'm a university professor and director of an aphasia community outreach program. I've been trying to teach and use the Life Participation Approach for several years, and I've wanted to spread the word with other speech language pathologists. So by adding this symbol to my email signature, I hope that colleagues will click on the eBadge and see what I've been up to.    My decision to display the eBadge is my way to help make system change possible, I envision a day in which all healthcare providers will aspire to provide patient-centered care, essentially from the ambulance ride to the emergency center, all the way to the person's return to home and community.   Lyssa Rome The benefits of this seem really clear. But will this eBadge or certificate be required for a clinician to to employ a person-centered or life participation approach to aphasia? Brooke?   Brooke Hallowell Oh, no, definitely not. I have to chime in on that. We know that many clinicians are deeply engaged in this approach. And many have adhered to this approach for years and in ways that may not have been labeled expressly as life participation approach. Still, based on gaps that we know exists in our current healthcare and community settings, we hope that the eBadge will really help clinicians showcase their knowledge to employers and peers and the people they serve. Engaging in the course itself can provide support for students and clinicians who want to consider life participation constructs, perhaps more deeply or in new ways. And as Melinda was just intimating, it's also a means of confirming shared values about life participation amongst us.   Lyssa Rome So when people have completed this course, how is that displayed as an eBadge? Melinda, maybe you can take that one?   Melinda Corwin Yes. So it'll be in the person's email signature line, if they choose to place it there. And the eBadge is from a company called Credly, which enables anyone to click on the badge icon and be taken to a website that explains exactly what training the person completed to earn that eBadge.   Brooke Hallowell Yeah, and it's so easy to register for the course, just go to the Aphasia Access website. That's www.aphasiaaccess.org. From there, you'll see the link to the knowledge course on the homepage. And that will take you to our new Aphasia Access Academy, which is the new home for all of our educational experiences. There is a cost. The cost for Aphasia Access members is $129. And for non-members, it's $179.    And if you're not already an Aphasia Access member, your enrollment in the course includes a one year, first-time membership. So it's really a wonderful way to experience so many benefits of our Aphasia Access membership and network. We have our Brag and Steal events, the distinguished lecture series, shared free resources, there's a discount registration for the Leadership Summit, and there are also on-demand pre-recorded webinars. So all of that comes along with that membership.    Lyssa Rome Well, I'm really excited about this course. And I appreciate your sharing more details about it. And I'm wondering if there are any last thoughts that you'd like to share with our listeners?   Brooke Hallowell Yeah, this is Brooke, I would just I've been reflecting as we've had this conversation today about how amazing it was to work with this collaborative team in developing the course. You know, I think all of us who have been involved in this from the beginning felt like we were already expert in the life participation approach. There isn't that much more to learn. But in fact, there was a tremendous amount of dynamic discussion, argumentation, passionate discussion about the various aspects of the life participation and how to portray it, how to talk about it, and what terms to use and not use. So I feel like I grew tremendously from the process of the course development. And I think a lot of that, I certainly hope that a lot of that comes out to people who participate in the course. So even if you think you're already expert in it, I'd still recommend that you give it a try for all the reasons that we talked about, and including that there's always more for all of us to learn about this approach.   Lyssa Rome So true.

Autumn Henning, SLP Speech Language Pathologist busting Speech Myths, Kimi calls this one "Speech Myth Busters". She gives us so many insightful nuggets such as the "Top 3 Reasons for Speech Sound Disorders". We talk about the pharyngeal and esophogeal swallow and all the crazy things that need to happen in the throat after the food leaves the mouth to swallow (14 minutes). 26 muscles, 6 cranial nerves for each swallow. Hygienists and SLP can work with oral phase of swallow with chewing and tongue placement, but for swallowing disorders in the throat or esophogus is more SLP scope. This is why it's important to collaborate! We talk about why R is such a common speech disorder and WHY from a speech perspective. Tongue tie or not, R is the most common speech issue. (34 minutes) We talk about reasons why kids that are in speech therapy at school are often missed for myofunctional disorders or ties. Because, just like in dentistry, myofunctional therapy is not taught as part of curriculum in school for SLP. As well as funding and district rules in school systems. We talk about the controversial topic of provider fatigue, gate keeping treatment due to tongue space. We each talk about our personal airway size and how we would not be candidates for releases.

In the School of Clinical Leadership, I've devoted an entire suite of programs to educating professionals on executive functioning. Even though the focus of the program is about career development and leadership, I believe that any professional working with K-12 kids needs extensive knowledge of executive functioning in order to lead effectively.I've likely given away the “quick and dirty” answer to the title of the episode; because I think supporting executive functioning is everyone's job.That being said, everyone's role in the process is different. A teacher may support executive functioning in a different way than a parent would. An occupational therapist may support it differently than a social worker or an SLP. That's why in episode 81 of the “Are they 18 yet?®” Podcast, I break down some of the different people who come into contact with K-12 kids, and what their role is in supporting executive functioning. I discuss the following roles:General education teachersSpecial education teachersSchool Service Personnel (SLPs, OTs, Psychs, Social Workers, etc.)Teaching AssistantsSchool LeadersParentsStudents~Dr. KarenIn this episode, I mentioned the School of Clinical Leadership.The School of Clinical Leadership is a program for pediatric clinicians supporting K-12 kids that want to find their own path for career growth that feels aligned, inspiring, empowered and completely, truly their own.

I love this power statement: “If you don't believe in ABA, it's like you don't believe in breathing.” It's a really impactful tidbit from my chat with Dr. Joanne Gerenser, SLP and Executive Director of the Eden II Programs. Dr. Gereneser and I discuss the importance of ABA in the field, as well as what that means for collaborating with other professionals; having SLPs and BCBAs work together with ABA to serve students with autism, especially those with challenging behavior.There are some professionals and parents in the field that just really don't understand what ABA is. There can be a lot of mean-spirited, negative, information online about ABA depending on where you're looking. When you really look at it and understand the professionals working in the ABA field and the help it can provide to the autism community with serious learning and behavior challenges, you will see just how important it is. When it comes to collaboration, you can't paint every BCBA with the same brush just the same as SLPs. The worst therapists are not representative of the entire field and you cannot walk into an interaction with telling the other professional what to do; It erodes the professional relationship.Dr. Gerenser's techniques for communicating with hesitant professionals:Build a professional relationship.See the person beyond the technique.Be humble, you don't know all the answers.You can find out more about Eden II and Dr. Joanne Gerenser, visit Eden II Programs online.#autism #speectherapyWhat's Inside:Using ABA in Speech TherapyHow to collaborate with hesitant professionalsServing students with problem behaviors as an SLPMentioned In This Episode: Home - Eden II Programs (eden2.org)ABA Speech: HomeRegister for the free SLP in an ABA Setting Mentorship webinar

As therapists we know that every client is different when it comes to goals, abilities, and needs but how often are we checking up on our cultural awareness for each individual? Maria Davis-Pierre is a mental health counselor and the founder of Autism in Black. As a mother with two autistic children and autism herself, Maria understands the stigma associated with the diagnosis and is on a mission to educate on inclusive, culturally responsive therapy for black families and other underrepresented cultures. “Is there anything culturally we should know about you?” A question Maria highlights as one of the best questionnaire form inclusions she has seen when it comes to starting therapy. As a professional and therapist working with unique individuals from all cultures and backgrounds, there are no details too small to incorporate into therapy that fit your client's culture. For example, bring culturally relevant props for a therapy lesson or check your understanding of cultural concepts that could be a typical household routine for one culture but seen as a learning deficit in another. Whether props, books, flashcards, etc. be cognisant of your materials and the reflection of your client within them. It is important for black children to see themselves reflected in their learning materials to not only understand but also stay engaged. It is okay if you're not an expert on every culture and every family. Ask questions, be open, and create a dialog so that you can continue to learn and support your clients in a culturally responsive way. What to keep in mind when getting started with culture-responsive therapy:It's okay to be uncomfortable, check your bias. Growth comes from uncomfortability.Use representative tools and materials. Be curious and ask questions. Life-long learning process.Be open, honest, and admit when you make mistakes.As therapists and professionals are number one, the goal is to always help the children and culturally responsive therapy is a really important but often forgotten piece of that. Maria shares some great tips and insights for professionals to consider. You can find out more about her work on the Autism in Black website.
