She is also the author of a children’s book series which consists of social stories to help the children with autism understand what is really happening in their bodies.
Little did Dr. Love know when her son was diagnosed on the autistic spectrum her entire perspective on the medical field would change and she would be treating hundreds of autistic children a few years later. Hear her story as a physician and a mom as she went through the process of helping her son. Listen to how all the pieces of the biomedical puzzle come together for many children she helps in her practice. Learn what steps you can take to help your child.

Ebates is just like Shopathome, which I posted about HERE. You receive a % of money spent at a website that you connected to using Ebates. It's really easy say you want to shop at Old Navy, you would log into Ebates, search for Old Navy and they would tell you what % cash back you can receive. Then you would click on Old Navy and they would redirect you to Old Navy's site, you just shop and place your order and in a few days you'll receive an email from Ebates telling you that you received your cash back. You will receive a $5 sign up bonus. Every 3 months they will send you a cash back payment for purchases posted during the previous quarter. But if you've earned less than $5.01 cash back, they will carry over your money to the next check. Bonus Rewards do not count toward the $5.01 minimum so after you sign up you'll have to get $5.01 more before you'll receive a check, but just make $5 and they send you $10! You can sign up HERE.
I love Shop at home!! I can't believe I've been shopping on the internet for years and never knew about this site! Go here and sign up, you get a free $5 sign up bonus. Then you can search the site and find what online store you want to shop at, click on the store and it will take you directly to the site to shop. The only difference they will keep track of it and if you purchase something at that store you will be rewarded a % of you purchase back! It's hard to believe that you could use this site to go to stores like Kohl's, Old Navy, Walmart, Target.... and get money back!! They will tell you before you go to the stores main link what % you will receive back. Before I purchase anything online I always check and see if cash back is available on the site. You earn a check when your Cash Back balance reaches $20. If you don't reach it in one month it just rolls over to the next month. They send checks out every few months. I love Shop at home!
Sendearnings is another site were you get paid for reading emails and taking surveys. Just like with Inboxdollars you will recieve a $5 sign up bonus. I joined on Janurary 2, 2010 and I've taken 3 surveys (they were the profile surveys you can take when you sign up) for a total of $1. I've clicked on 72 emails for a total of $1.44. My grand total so far is $7.44. When you get up to $30 you can cash out. It's really easy to just click emails and confirm you read them. Just make sure after they send you to the companies website after you confirm in the email to check and see if you need to click and confirm it on the companies site also. You do not have to sign up or take the offers that are being advertised in the emails. You can sign up here!
I've been using Inbox Dollars for a little over a month and I've got $8.90 in my account so far. You go HERE, sign up and you get a $5 sign up bonus! They send you emails and surveys daily. All you have to do on the emails is just click to confirm them and they take you to the company's site (the company the email is about) sometimes you have to confirm it again once you to the company site, you do not have to sign up or take the offer that is in the email you just have to confirm you read it! You get about $0.02 per email. They also send out a few surveys, I've done 4 so far and have made $1.50 from that. 3 of those surveys are the ones in your profile, so everyone can do them right away. When you reach $30 you can cash out. So it's not a get rich quick thing but it's really easy and every little bit helps!!
