Welcome! My name is Olga Lukina. I have been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) since May 2021 and I have worked in the field of Autism for 6 years. Also, I am a Certified Occupational Therapist and I have experience in this field since 2011. My special interest is Applied Behavior Analysis. My colleagues and I opened a center for children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders that is called “Solis Augšup”. I have been one of the owners since 2018.
Every day I hear a lot of questions and comments from parents about challenges they struggle with, caring and educating their children with Autism. Most difficult topics are eating and sleeping problems, toileting, stereotypy, problem behavior and tantrums, etc. In my opinion, the best way to get information about new and scientifically approved methods is to communicate and discuss things with specialists and researchers. So, I decided to make the project – podcast “About and Related to ASD” to share and spread the scientifically approved information to families, as well as specialists, teachers, and other interested listeners.
