Patricia Lemer of Pittsburgh, PA speaks of her experience in the field of Autism, where she identifies problems in key life style factors such as uninterrupted sleep, clean eating, and reducing intrusive chemicals. Patricia and her interviewer, Dr. Elisa Haransky Beck, discuss the development of motor skills and communication. From Patricia’s expertise, it is clear that even the simplest parts of life have major impacts on our development.
Patricia is a Licensed Professional Counselor and practised as an educational diagnostician for over 40 years. She earned a Masters of Education in counseling and learning disabilities from Boston College and a Masters in Business from John Hopkins University, and begun her career working with genetic syndromes in the 1960s. Having an immense background in learning disabilities and developmental delays, Patricia Lemer co-founded and became the Executive Director of Developmental Delay Resources (DDR) in the mid 1990s. She has since authored multiple books on managing Autism and teaches courses on developmental delays, including autism spectrum disorders.
