Mom of Autistic Child

Val Fein is an autism intervention specialist in private practice, a psychology PhD candidate working on her dissertation research, and the mother of a child whose diagnosis moved from autism: severe/moderate to autism: recovered/indistinguishable, after intensive early intervention.

Val is currently conducting research for her doctoral dissertation. She is investigating how expert autism-intervention practitioners describe the process of successfully establishing moments of intersubjective engagement during their early intervention sessions with children who have autism.

Val designs and oversees individualized comprehensive autism intervention programs. She teaches parents, educators, therapists, and paraprofessionals how to target recovery from autism for the children they love. She works extremely closely with each family, partnering with parents to create and maintain programs that aim to maximize joy for their child. She specializes in the moment-to-moment mechanics of effective and meaningful intervention.
