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?

  7. What an amazing interview! Thank you for sharing your gifts with us and opening our eyes with your humor and grace.
