New Autism Podcast with Dr. Mary Barbera Coming January 22, 2019


In January 2017, I started my weekly video
blog, and on January 22, 2019, I’ll be adding a weekly autism podcast called Turn Autism
Around with Dr. Mary Barbera. Today, I’m going to tell you why I decided
to start a podcast, and give you a sneak peak at the first few episodes. Hi, I’m Dr. Mary Barbera, autism mom, board-certified
behavior analyst, online course creator, and bestselling author of The Verbal Behavior
Approach. Each week I provide you with some of my ideas
about turning autism around, so if you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel, you can
do that now. Most of you know that have been following
me for a while that two decades ago, I fell into the autism world when my firstborn son
Lucas was diagnosed with autism just one day before his third birthday, and more than a
decade ago, in 2007, I published my first book, The Verbal Behavior Approach. It’s available in several languages, sold
over 50,000 copies, and is still selling a lot of copies every day as well. About four or five years ago, I fell into
the online marketing space, and I did this because four or five years ago, I was going
door to door seeing clients, mostly in the early intervention field. I was also traveling around the world speaking
about my book, and neither going door to door or speaking to large or small crowds was efficient
in getting my techniques out to the world. I started learning about online marketing,
and needed to learn things like opt-ins, lead generation, needed to learn a lot about Facebook
ads, YouTube, online course creation, evergreen campaigns. I’ve had several mentors in the online marketing
space, including Jeff Walker, who is the creator of the Product Launch Formula and Launch Club,
which I’ve belonged to for the past two years now, as well as other online mentors, namely
Amy Porterfield, and Pat Flynn, who have both inspired me with their weekly podcasts as
well as their paid online courses and communities. Basically, I fell into that world, took courses,
listened to podcasts. I still listen to online marketing podcasts
every single week, to learn more about how I can get my message out to the world. Just a few weeks ago, in December of 2018,
I made a big decision. I am going to bite the bullet and start a
podcast called Turn Autism Around, which will debut Tuesday, January 22, 2019. Why a podcast, and why now? You may know that I’ve set a big goal, to
turn autism around for two million by 2020, and now that it’s 2019, I’m under a tight
deadline. I started looking, I actually bought Pat Flynn’s
podcast course last year, but I didn’t watch it, or follow through with it, but now I binge
watched it, and I’m ready to go. What I discovered was kind of surprising is
that they’re really … I couldn’t find any weekly autism podcasts that were like I’m
going to create. Many of the podcasts around the topic of autism
have started, and stopped, and it’s just a lot to keep going when you have a video blog,
or a podcast, but I’m committed that I’m not just going to start it. I’m going to do a weekly podcast, long-term. I have great helpful information that I want
to get out to both parents and professionals, so my podcast will be on iTunes. It’ll be on Google Play, Stitcher, anywhere
else you listen to podcasts, as well as on my website, at marybarbera.com/podcast. It will be a weekly show, every Tuesday, approximately
30 to 45 minutes in length. It’ll be both for parents and professionals,
working with toddlers with signs of autism, all the way up to teens and adults with moderate
to severe autism. My goal is to give information that will help
turn autism around, and also help autism professionals and parents be less stressed, and live happier
lives. I’ll cover autism from all different angles,
including medical. I don’t know if you know this, but I’m also
a registered nurse. I’ll be covering the behavioral aspects of
autism as a behavior analyst. I’ll also be tackling the financial, economic
problems with autism, the rise in the autism rate, the possibility of autism recovery,
different treatment options, even I’ll be covering the political aspects of autism. It will be a mixture of solo shows, where
it’s just me talking, as well as some interviews. In the first set of podcasts, I’ll give some
details about my fall into the autism world, and give you some of my parent and professional
key lessons I had learned that will help you. On one of my early episodes, we’ll have an
interview with Kelsey, a single mom of two. She has two sons under the age of five, and
she’ll share how she took matters into her own hands to help her sons, and then became
a professional in the field as well. In another podcast interview early on, I’ll
interview Dr. Megan Miller, a doctoral level BCBA who will discuss common behavior procedures
that often backfire, and what to do instead. I can’t wait until you hear all this great
content, so please, mark your calendars for Tuesday, January 22nd, and on that day, I
would like you to search for Turn Autism Around on iTunes, download the episodes that will
be available that day, subscribe to the podcast to get my shows automatically, and after you
listen to an episode or two, and assuming you love it, which I’m hoping you will, please
give me a rating and review for the podcast. This will help generate a lot of buzz around
the podcast, and help me reach a lot more people around the world. I hope you’re as excited as I am about my
new podcast. Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, January
22, and if you’re watching this video blog after the 22nd, please go now, and subscribe
to my Turn Autism Around podcast, and wherever you’re watching this, leave me a comment,
especially if you have any podcast ideas. Give me a thumbs up, share this video with
others who might benefit, and for more information about my podcast, go to marybarbera.com/podcast,
and I’ll see you right here, next week.
