In her series Let’s talk! psychology professor Lisa Jacovski draws on her real-life experience in applied behavior analysis, mainly in autism.
“I decided to write this series to show families and children the beauty in being different and having autism. I wanted to show families that having the diagnosis was not limiting and their child can do anything too. I wanted to inspire children to ask questions about other children who may act differently and open that conversation. I also wanted neurotypical children to be open to others that may be different. If we can inspire our children to be open now then that negative stigma around autism will slowly go away as they become adults who are open.”
