In his Autism in NB Blog, Harold Doherty writes about his son Conor and autism from a father’s perspective.
Harold makes me think about the broad spectrum of autism. About how it affects the minutia in the everyday life of families. He helps me as an occupational therapist understand that one approach, one therapeutic technique or a single mindset doesn’t fit all. As an occupational therapist, I very much appreciate the accounts of Conor’s daily life as the stories exemplify the power of meaningful occupation, engagement and participation.
Harold is a fearless advocate for his son, for evidence-based autism treatment, and for youth and adults with severe autism. Harold Doherty tells it like it is. We all need to hear it.
