Great job! Move how you outlined your intro and related to listeners with your story. I have two nephews with ASD and my sister is going to love your show. Thanks!

You are the solution

My name is Yodit. I have been in the field for four years now, and the science of ABA empowers me as a person, professional, and a parent of a child with special needs. I love what we do and why we do it. I heard about you a few years ago, but I did not come across to your vlog or podcast till a few months ago. I love your podcast and videos on YouTube. They are very informative. You are one solution for the dissemination of science, especially in equipping parents with resources. I have recommended your website to several parents already. I am so thankful that you exist in this day and age to do what you are doing. You are changing lives daily.

My life saver

I love listening to these pod casts and all of the many resources Mary Barbera has to offer. As a parent I was so frustrated with the lack of good quality services. Everyday that went by my frustration and anxiety grew until I found Mary Barbera and all of her resources. The pod casts provide me with additional resources and ideas. Thanks for giving me so much hope Mary!
