Peter Kaye speaks with Dr. Karen Lindgren of Bancroft about autism and the various services they provide the individuals and families they serve. Dr. Lindgren explains how an autistic person may react to a situation in a way that may seem strange or even scary to an onlooker and offers evidence based tools to help parents and caregivers teach their loved one to communicate their feeing in a more acceptable and constructive way. She also speaks to the advances in technology like smart stoves and smart locks that aid an individual with autism to be more independent.
