IN THIS WEEK’S EPISODE:
(18 mins) In this episode, hosts Katherine Cody, Psy.D. and Becca Lory, CAS, BCCS welcome Swathi Chettipally from Designs By Siri. Designs By Siri is a jewelry company that highlights the work of Amy Chettipally, or “Siri” as she is fondly called by her family and friends. Siri was diagnosed with autism when she was three and has limited capacity for speech. However, her excellent motor skills led her mother Swathi to discover a talent for making jewelry, which has had a therapeutic effect on her and boosted her confidence. She continues to inspire others to become productive members of society. Swathi discusses how she discovered Siri’s gift for jewelry making, gives suggestions on how parents can highlight the talents of their children with autism, and discusses how she hoped to help others also find their passions.
