Autism Resource Mom - Autism Support and Information from the Best Expert, a Mom by AllAutismTalk published on 2018-10-03T20:26:43Z Debora L. Smith spent more than two decades in marketing and communications before she merged that expertise with the experience she gained raising a son with autism spectrum disorder. Nearly six years ago she founded Autism Resource Mom—a nonprofit organization that provides support, guidance and hope to families of individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Debora has been actively involved with the autism community in Orange County, CA, for two decades, serving in various positions. If she’s not at a conference picking up new skills, she’s sharing what she’s learned through speaking engagements and her own instructive workshops. Passionate about helping individuals with challenging behaviors, she has studied and received Tier 1 Training in the Collaborative Problem Solving Approach—and is in the process of becoming a “Certified THINK:KIDS Mentor.” Debora lives in Orange County, California, with her husband, Mike, and together they are learning to come to grips with being empty-nesters. Their son Drew, lives in nearby Costa Mesa and is a film student at Orange Coast College. All Autism Talk (allautismtalk.com) is sponsored by Autism Spectrum Therapies (AST) (autismtherapies.com), LEARN Behavioral (learnbehavioral.com) and the LEARN Provider Network.
