Call in to speak with the host
Today, as some may know, is National Autism Awareness Day.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (or ASD) has risen dramatically in the recent years, and some suggest that as many as 1 in 88 children born in the United States will now be diagnosed with the condition. Meanwhile, public funding continues to feel the pressure on all fronts. So what happens to these kids? Join us tonight on THE MIDDLE GROUND as we talk with author Carrie Cariello to discuss the issue. Carrie is a New Hampshire mother of five young children--one of whom is autistic. She has recently written a memoir entitled What Color is Monday? and she will share with us her experiences in dealing with educational and public programs aimed at helping families like hers.Presented by Coffee Party USA, "The Middle Ground" covers a variety of topics with a trans-partisan approach with an eye to finding the place where the two major political parties share that 'middle ground.' Co-hosted by award-winning filmmaker Eric Byler (center-left perspective) and political author Michael Charney (center-right perspective), the show airs every Tuesday 8 to 9:30 pm ET.

It's good to talk.
