If you are a reader of this column, you might think of me as “the lady who helps dogs.” What you might not know is that while saving dogs is my passion, I also have a day job that equals my passion for saving dogs. I am an autism consultant and work with people affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is a complex developmental disability that causes challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.
