Retired Professor, Autism Specialist: Paul McDonnell

Mr. McDonnell explains the strides New Brunswick has made to help families with autistic children, and improvements in classroom services. His professional expertise and personal interest take us deep into understanding the impact of the Applied Behavioral Analysis program.

Mr. McDonnell maps out autism affects three areas of functioning, “particularly social development”. We explore Applied Behavioral Analysis and how it helps “optimize learning”.

Cost benefit studies consistently show the savings in autism treatment “over the lifetime of the individual” if you invest in early intervention.

We explore the impact of integration into the school system, and the supports provided. This naturally flows into support for families and what is available.

Our conversation takes a different turn, as Mr. McDonnell and his wife Liz host Lansdowne House Concerts, where musicians perform in front of fifty people at the McDonnell’s house.
