Hello! I’m Karen Kabaki-Sisto, an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist and applied behavioral analysis (ABA) instructor. My goal of my blog posts is to give you a clearer view of the strengths and struggles of people with autism because every one of us has a role to help. Writing with everyday words makes it easy to understand topics that are critical or misunderstood with a practical, solution-based focus.
My career improving the lives of hundreds of children with Autsim Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD), Asperger’s Syndrome, and social communication disorders spans 20 years and includes working within my own private practice and both public and specialized schools. My passion and dedication is to help people with autism communicate.
For the past decade, I have been perfecting a highly effective social communication therapy system to enable people with autism to have better relationships with others through conversation. It’s called “I Can Have Conversations With You!™” in the form of an iPad app. “I Can Have Conversations With You!” will empower people of almost any age with autism to improve their abilities to talk and understand during everyday conversation with different people by knowing what others are thinking, feeling, and saying. Be on the lookout for my autism app’s debut later this year, and stay connected to my progress on its development at I Can Have Conversations With You! on Facebook.
I look forward to hearing from you and your comments!
