Making the Most of Online Therapy

We live in a new era, going online as much as possible for health care. My puppy and I shot this video during the 2020 National Foundation for Autism Research (virtual) Race for Autism to introduce you to the use of video for therapy and medical care. Enjoy!

NFAR is doing so much to support families during this difficult time.  They help teachers, care programs and do tech training for better jobs, while providing lots of resources to families.  Please consider joining me in supporting NFAR by clicking the National Foundation for Autism Research link on the video page, maybe after you enjoy watching Charlie and me with our cartoons.
