Pal Experiences Founder Melanie Isaacs and CEO Adam Isaacs were featured on Autism Live with Shannon Penrod on April 27, 2017. Autism Live is an interactive webshow providing support, resources, information, facts, entertainment and inspiration to parents, teachers and practitioners working with children on the Autism Spectrum.

Shannon Penrod, host of Autism Live, called Pal Experiences "needed, clever and smart". She added that she wants to "expand this everywhere" and "spread you like peanut butter". 

An award-winning stand-up comedienne, director and author, Shannon’s goal is to provide families with information and hope while on their journey through autism. Shannon is the proud mother of Jem, who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two and a half after having lost virtually all of his language and social skills. Helping her son on his journey through Autism became Shannon’s top priority.  Whether it was researching new diets, learning the legal ins and outs of special education law or finding funding for ABA therapy, Shannon became her son’s best advocate and an advocate for many other families. 

"We were just honored to have the opportunity to share our story and vision for Pal with Autism Live," said Adam Isaacs. "And to be able to talk with an autism mom as well-respected as Shannon, and to have her speak to the need for our tools and resources, was incredibly humbling and motivating at the same time."

Autism Live is a service of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, and airs online at
