Meet Dr. Theresa Lyons

The Professor of Healing Autism

When a child is diagnosed with autism, it’s not uncommon for parents to feel overwhelmed and spend thousands of hours searching for information on how to help their child. My great passion is translating cutting-edge autism research into actionable steps. I help my clients, who include parents and grandparents, to heal their child’s autism symptoms so they can forget about autism and do the things with their child that they always dreamed about.

My goal is to help you eliminate autistic symptoms/behavior in your loved one by teaching you high-gain, low risk actionable steps to improve the quality of all your lives.

It is not about changing who your loved one is—it's about giving them a life without self injury and meltdowns. The ability to sleep through the night, walk properly, and digest their food. Doesn't every person deserve that?

So who am I? I am part Ivy League scientist, part medical strategist, part trailblazer, and part Mama Bear. Yeah, don't mess with my little cub.

I don't fit into a conventional box and you probably don't either. I had to look beyond what I thought I knew to heal my daughter. And actually, she ended up healing me too.

I help people rethink the impossible and back it up with actionable steps based on cutting edge scientific research.

I was 10 years old when I set my goal of getting a Ph.D. from an Ivy League University. It took 18 years of relentless motivation but I earned my Ph.D. in Chemistry from Yale University (I also have two other Master of Science degrees in chemistry but uhhh who's counting).

I have always been relentlessly motivated! There is not an obstacle that remains in my way for long. And autism wasn't going to break that streak!

I have vast experience in the pharmaceutical industry and have worked for a large pharmaceutical company in research and development, at a consulting firm as a Medical Strategist, and for a cancer non-profit organization. After having a beautiful baby girl, I took a position with a non-governmental organization to improve the health of disadvantaged people around the globe. My world instantly changed forever when my daughter was diagnosed with severe autism and I asked the question "Ok, so now what?"

Healing is a journey with many twists and turns. My daughter is still healing. I don't know all the answers and have made many mistakes. I do know how to build teams and problem solve together to get impactful and quick results. And I have gotten great results. But my commitment to you is to give you access to the very best science and tools out there so that you can heal your child too. Knowledge leads to healing.

I'm known as delivering the most comprehensive, highest quality information to parents wanting to heal their child from autism...and that's why I'm known as The Professor of Healing Autism.
