Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Author of Turn Autism Around (forthcoming with Hay House)
Dr. Mary Barbera “fell” into the autism world in 1999 when her first-born son, Lucas was diagnosed with autism. Over the past 2 decades, Mary transformed from a confused and overwhelmed parent to a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and best-selling author of The Verbal Behavior Approach: How to Teach Children with Autism and Related Disorders published in 2007. She launched her first online course in early 2015 and later built a membership program to help both parents and autism professionals. Her next book will be published in 2021 and will focus on helping parents turn things around for young kids with signs of autism.
