Joshua L.

Volunteer Manager
Ocala, FL, USA


Hello! I'm from South Florida and have been supporting families affected by autism since 2000. I'm the founder of PowerParent, an online platform dedicated to solving parenting problems using simple step-by-step solutions. Throughout my career, I've noticed a growing need to move from directly teaching children to focusing on supporting parents in helping their child improve in communication, socialization, and behavior. Rather than using routine, in the box principles to work with parents, I coach parents in time management, organization, communication, and all the skills needed to be successful at helping their child lead a meaningful, purpose-filled life. I have coached parents all over the world, in addition to speaking on how to best help parents affected by autism. Outside of my coaching and speaking roles, I serve as Chief Behavior Analyst for the Mindfulness Map, where I help ensures real, sustaining outcomes are created for companies that incorporate mindfulness-based practices.
