Deborah Lipsky, M.Ed.

Board Member

Autism Society of Maine


Deborah Lipsky, M.Ed., is an accomplished presenter traveling the United States and Canada delivering seminars, presentations, workshops, and keynote addresses on understanding autism from an insider’s viewpoint. In 2005, she was awarded the Autism Society of Maine’s outstanding volunteer award, and in 2006, she became the recipient of the Temple Grandin award for “outstanding success in her life thereby being an inspiration to others.”

Mrs. Lipsky became an international bestseller with Managing Meltdowns (2010), a book based on her S.C.A.R.E.D. model, an intervention guide full of strategies to help first responders and anyone witnessing an individual with autism having a catastrophic reaction (meltdown). In her second book, From Anxiety to Meltdown (2011), the focus is on understanding anxiety and how it influences thoughts and behaviors in individuals on the spectrum. It also is the first book to truly distinguish the difference between tantrums and meltdowns and offers numerous strategies to deal with both. Mrs. Lipsky also wrote a chapter on learning social skills from animals and is featured on the cover of the book “Autism All Stars”, edited by Josie Santomauro and published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Her third book on the nature of demons and spiritual warfare was released by Tau Publishers in the fall of 2012. Mrs. Lipsky’s fourth book, How People with Autism Grieve, and How to Help (2013), is an honest, first-hand account of how people with autism deal with the loss of someone in their life.

Mrs. Lipsky has been featured in a documentary along with Temple Grandin called, “Making Our Way” which was produced for Maine Public Broadcasting Television by Dan Lambert. In 2015 the documentary about her life, “Living with Autism”, also produced by Dan Lambert, was released and is available on DVD.
