Make the Positive Happen.

My writing and my work focus on looking beyond the diagnosis, seeing what our children CAN do. Finding what it is they are good at and 'running' with it, to create the best life possible for the

My son used to be scared of water. I had to come up with a special plan on getting him into the pool. I reached out to just the right person who helped him overcome his fear. Now he swims every Saturday and enjoys the beach.  Here's a story on the Today Show about Dan overcoming this challenge.

I am dedicated to helping parents find the positive, focus on it, let go of the fear and manage the stress. 


Here's How It's Going to Work:

“Meet” and Discuss

We will have a video or phone conversation; I will talk to you, the parent, about your concerns and your goals for your child; I can observe videos of your child at home and/or at his current program as well as talk to other professionals, teachers and advisors who are helping you at the moment.


Action Plan

I will then come up with a written action plan, which would include:  What you can do today, such as find the right program, therapy, treatments, ways for your child to be in the community in a meaningful way, and tools to empower yourself. 

Autism affects not only the child but the whole family. I know!


Why come to me


  • I have been through this time and time again when I was in a crossroad with my son. I empowered myself to keep going and find the best way each time.

  • I wrote about it. In order to do that I analyzed and processed all my knowledge into a way of doing, acting out of power as opposed to survival or fear.

  • I speak to parents, organizations and professionals about it. See here at the United Nations.

  • I know the suffering and pain the family goes through both from my own experience and also from networking with many families along the way. I founded Autism Parents Community.

  • Being a lawyer I am analytical, able to process lots of information and come up with a solution. I can also inform you of your rights (such as insurance as well as school program) and support you through exercising those rights, wether advocating for you or empowering you and guiding you to advocate on your own for your child.
