I have known Erin for more than 5 years, and I have only good things to say about her. She has an amazing story and a storied career that has improved the lives of so many people, especially the individuals and families who seek her help through the Els for Autism Foundation®.
Here is our conversation. Enjoy it!
Merrick Egber started working with the Els for Autism Foundation just a few months before the ribbon cutting of the Els Center of Excellence in 2014. He earned his B.A. in Communication Studies from Florida Atlantic University, with specialized classes on group facilitation, management, and organizing.
Here is our interview!
I am deeply grateful and excited to introduce you to Dr. Michael Alessandri, whose list of qualifications and accomplishments are amazing and impossible to quantify. He is the Executive Director of UM-NSU CARD (the University of Miami-Nova Southeastern University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities), and just celebrated his 25th anniversary there this year. I am proud to call him a mentor and a friend. Without further ado, here he is!
Dr. Jack Scott is the founder and executive director of the Florida Atlantic University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, who is also my friend. He is an associate professor in the Department of Special Education and teaches courses on autism, inclusion, and behavior analysis.
He has helped many people and families. It is my honor to introduce you to him!
