Today we are delighted to welcome well-known and respected autism expert, Dr. Stephen Shore to Autism Empowerment Radio.
We will be talking about his personal journey with autism and will also be discussing autism advocacy for youth and adults, disclosure, education and employment.
Diagnosed with "Atypical Development and strong autistic tendencies" and "too sick" for outpatient treatment Dr. Stephen Shore was recommended for institutionalization back in the 1960s. Nonverbal until four, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife, and others, Stephen is now a professor at Adelphi University where his research focuses on matching best practice to the needs of people with autism.
In addition to working with children and talking about life on the autism spectrum, Stephen presents and consults internationally on adult issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, advocacy, and disclosure as discussed in his books Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Ask and Tell: Self-advocacy and Disclosure for People on the Autism Spectrum, the critically acclaimed Understanding Autism for Dummies., and the newly released DVD Living along the Autism Spectrum: What it means to have Autism or Asperger Syndrome.
President emeritus of the Asperger’s Association of New England and former board member of the Autism Society, Dr. Shore serves in the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association, United States Autism and Asperger Association, and other autism related organizations.

When parents receive a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder for their child, life as they knew it before is never the same.
Although a parent may not realize it or understand the complexities, there is a grief process that often occurs when a child is diagnosed with autism, Asperger's or other special needs. This differs from the process that one might experience with the death of a close family member or friend.
Today we are going to talk about the Autism Grief Cycle and Tips for Parents and Grandparents while working through each stage.
Karen and John from Autism Empowerment will explain some of what they went through when their two sons were diagnosed with autism and Asperger syndrome respectfully. Karen will also talk about how she felt after she received her own autism spectrum diagnosis. (Yes, parents on the autism spectrum can still go through the grief cycle for their own children on the spectrum!)
Here are some of the topics we'll cover with tips for working through each:
Shock and disbelief
Anger or Rage
Confusion and powerlessness
Shame or embarrassment
Fear and panic
We will also do our best to answer questions that people have sent into Autism Empowerment in advance. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
