S2E9

S2E9 I had the opportunity to speak with Sheri A. Marino, MA, CCC-SLP this past week. She’s the Executive Director of the Autism Healthcare Collaborative. The only way I can think to describe this organization is Dr. House meets Autism. The AHC basically provides families of medically complicated Autistic children with access to the top doctors from various specialities via teleconferencing. This puts all necessary medical professionals in the same room at the same time and allows them to discuss your child’s case in realtime, with your child’s current doctor.

Sheri and I discuss the importance and advantages of what they’re doing for families.
