Listen, Learn and be entertained!

A must listen, Dr. Divina taps into true experiences and deep routed feeling on parenting a child with Autism. Her views are like no other as she is not only the medical provider and professional but also the parent of a child on the spectrum. Her ability to see all views helps us as parents get a better understanding and learn much easier.
