The Exceptional Life is a five-part documentary series that teams Development Pediatrician Dr. Joelene Huber, a specialist in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and real-life “Nanny 911” Behaviour Therapist Sarah Davis. Together they’ll work closely with parents raising children with Autism, focusing on key communication, social skills and behaviour issues. With targeted ABA therapies and support our experts will help add to our parent’s toolkit. This is an intimate look into life with ASD as we follow in real-time the successes and challenges our families face.

This series is anchored by Dr. Joelene Huber, a Developmental Pediatrician specializing in diagnosing and treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) throughout their childhood and adolescence. Dr. Joelene is a well-known medical journalist and regular contributor to CBC National Network, Rogers and Bell Media networks, as well as a guest columnist for Today’s Parent and The Globe and Mail.

Along with Sarah Davis, a Behaviour Therapist and real life “Nanny 911” who specializes in ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis, the gold-standard therapy for treating children with ASD), this interdisciplinary pair will help three families with children on the Autism Spectrum.
