    Healing Autism Parents


    With all the education, progress, and advancements in the world today, we sometimes forget about problems in front of our faces. We have seen increased divisions, whether it is based on gender, race, or ability, and these divisions create depressing barricades to healthy progress. In this episode we address some of the issues within the autism parents' community, how they prevent progress and how it affects advancement.

    Autistic lives matter!

    Heads up: This episode has a PG--13 rating.

    Therapy, Self Care and Other Support for Parents of Kids with Autism

    in Family

    All parents face daily obstacles, but parents of children with autism experience increased challenges that can result in overwhelming anxiety, depression, self-doubt and sadness. Ultimately, these parents are husbands, wives, sisters, brothers, family and friends who simply wish to experience more fulfilling and satisfying lives with their children.

    Dr. Darren Sush is a clinical psychologist and board certified behavior analyst, specializing in therapy for parents of children with autism. Throughout his career, Dr. Sush has recognized that parents of children with autism can significantly benefit from the guidance, comfort and empathy of therapeutic services that support their unique experiences and struggles.

    Over the past decade, Dr. Sush has had the privilege of working within agencies that provide intervention and support for children diagnosed with autism. Through his work developing treatment programs, meeting with families and helping children, he has gained exceptional knowledge and understanding of the unique experiences of parents of children with autism.

    He offers direct knowledge and guidance to the various questions that arise regarding children with autism’s behavior, skill building, treatment, funding and school placement, and helps families live their best lives possible.

    Positively Autistic: Autism, God's Bright Kids

    in Lifestyle

    On today's episode, Dana's husband is her special guest! He is going to share with us what it's like to be an adult with Aspergers (self-diagnosis), the challenges he has, and the blessings that came with learning about the condition.

    Dana is the owner of AngelArts, a Creative Arts Agency and Publishing House. Seven years ago, she discovered that her son and husband both have Aspergers. It's opened up a whole new world for her and her family. Yes, there are incredible challenges, but she chooses to see how God has blessed her family through it.

    Her son created a painting that became an inspiration for her Autism Awareness product line, Autism: God's Bright Kids. She also is publishing a book called "Angels in the Midst: Rising Above Autism and Aspergers," a collection of stories, poetry, videos, and artwork about how God uses ordinary people in the challenge of living with Autism and how He works in the midst of it. She is looking for submissions, sponsors, and nonprofits to give a portion of the revenue to. The book is due out in April 2015.
