Show Notes

Today we get to chat with Maria Davis-Pierre, the owner and CEO of Autism in Black, Inc.

Here's more about Maria and Autism in Black: 

The organization aims to bring awareness to Autism Spectrum Disorder and reduce the stigma associated with the diagnosis in the black community. 

As a licensed therapist, Maria primarily works with parents to provide support through education and advocacy training. Her passion for working in the field stems from her personal journey with ASD when her daughter received the diagnosis at a very early age. 

In addition to therapy, Maria dons many other titles including coach, speaker, advocate, and most recently author. Her first published work, a Self-Care Affirmation Journal, is currently available for purchase on Amazon. Maria’s unique approach to coaching and counseling exemplifies her drive and motivation toward greater acceptance and overcoming the barriers and personal struggles associated with raising a child on the spectrum. Connect with her today and allow her to partner with you through your ASD journey.
