Autism and Occupational Therapy

I wanted to share my latest interview. called The Power of Presuming Competence. This is a podcast specifically targeting occupational therapists but should have useful insights for other professionals, parents and anyone who is interested in an insider’s point-of-view autism.

  1. I love this quote from the web-host of the podcast:

    “Have you ever heard that people on the autism spectrum aren’t great at perspective taking? It turns out that it’s actually a problem on two sides of the spectrum.”

    Sounds like it came from Our Man in California

  2. Woot! Woot! OT was the least hated. I loved this interview! Keep waking people up Ido.
    April the OT

  3. AMAZING. I’m an SLP and this was so powerful. I bought your book “Ido in Autismland” and you articulate your feelings and perspective beautifully. I often wish I could know what my non-speaking students are thinking and you give me a glimpse into this, which helps me know how to be the best person and professional possible.

  4. Thank you!
    I highly recommend In Two Worlds for your next read.

    • I knew I was getting your book “In Two Worlds” for Christmas so I had to hold off. But, I just finished it and it was amazing. Not only do you write elegantly and with humor, I can take your experience and transparency to better inform my practices as an SLP. For that I am forever grateful. Thank you for all you do!

  5. Hi Ido,
    I’m an SLP in Sydney, Australia and I work with many Autistic children and students who are non-speaking. I heard your interview and got goosebumps. Absolutely loved it! Thank you for sharing your insight and for all your work advocating for others. I feel very lucky to have found you and your books (which I have purchased since!).

  6. Ido, thank you for your books.
    How have you managed to remember the Letters themselves?
    Was it only ABA at first stage?
