RICH: Welcome everyone to the 9th episode of Connect with S.U.C.C.E.S.S., a podcast built around the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach and the person who coined it, Dr. Lynette Scotese-Wojtila. And in this episode we are going to take a moment to meet an amazing up-and-coming superstar in the world of autism, Maria Wojtila. She is the heart and soul of Dr. Lynette and I can’t wait for you guys to meet her. But first, let’s take a moment before we jump in to talk with Dr. Lynette and see what today’s term for the episode is going to be.
LYNETTE: Well, I've got to be honest, coming up with the term for this episode was kind of a challenge because of just the girth of this episode is just so great. So we decided that the term should be “growth” because it encapsulates all that The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach in its 25 years of existence has grown to become. It has helped children grow, it has helped us grow as individuals and parents and teachers and professionals, and perhaps most importantly, we believe The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach can help society grow in the way that it understands, assesses, educates, treats, and embraces individuals on the autism spectrum.
Listen to episode 9 as Dr. Scotese-Wojtila and her daughter, Maria, discuss how The S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Approach influenced and benefitted Maria's life and how TSA has inspired Maria to pursue a career in occupational therapy -- and a life serving others.
Every podcast episode concludes with either a challenge or key takeaways for our listeners. The Challenge from Episode 9: So today, listeners, I’d like the challenge for you to be this: Please take a moment to reflect on who has facilitated growth in your life or your child’s life and take a moment to thank them.
