David Doe's (must-read) in-depth Bio can be read here. From David…"You can’t teach a person with Autism the same way that is taught to neuro-typical’s because they are not neuro-typical… Sometimes I see such an obvious problem that the parents can not see and this would only be because they are neuro-typical... The Autism Whisperer is a title my wife gave me as I try to translate some of her special education students behaviors for her." David Doe, The Autism Whisperer, was dumped in a boys home run by the Salvation Army at age eleven. By thirteen he was an orphan that had been frequently abused by both adults and other bullies that lived at the home. After many years and finally seeing a specialist, David was officially given a medical diagnosis of autism. Today David lives in San Diego with his wife and three adopted children and shares his experiences and knowledge with those in the autism community. You can visit his site at The Magic Room.
