This week’s episode is an incredible conversation with Whitney Sarnowski. Whitney spent the first few years after graduating with her undergraduate degree - in special educations and a minor in primary education - teaching children with Autism. In her third year of teaching, she decided to pursue her ME.D with the end goal of becoming a BCBA. Whitney then gave birth to her son (now 3 years old) who was diagnosed with ASD.
Whitney now uses her education and training to empower and educate parents on the fundamentals of early intervention and behavior principles. ABA can be a very controversial therapy and Whitney works very hard to break down the misconceptions and fears surrounding ABA, in order to help children and families feel safe and confident when accessing ABA for their child.
