Dancing with Autism

-- Quote of the Day -- 

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. If we all did the things that we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”

 ~ Thomas Edison

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be known for your disability rather than your ability? Victoria Marin joins us today – an Occupational Therapist, mother of 5 children, and author based in New Jersey, USA – who is here to talk about the challenges her Autistic son faced as a young boy. She wrote a wonderfully moving book telling based on some of these experiences titled Aiden’s Waltz, which we’ll learn about in this interview as well.  In her career, Victoria once held a position in the Metropolitan Occupational Therapy Education Council and was a member of the Dominican College Professional Advisory Council.  As an adjunct professor at Rockland Community College, she instructed students in the Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant Program.
