    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.

    Uniting the Autism Community - Changing the World

    in Lifestyle

    Is it possible to Unite the Autism Community? Can Autistic and Aspie adults, teens and children respectfully come together with parents, educators, service professionals and nonprofit autism organizations to discuss challenges and work toward the common good?


    If so, what would that look like? Who would be seated at the table? Who would facilitate the conversation? 


    How do we calm the chaos, reduce the infighting and begin to work together for a stronger, more united, autism community that focuses on acceptance, empowerment, optimal outcomes and positive life trajectories? How do we provide individuals and families with support, opportunity and connection?


    Join Autism Empowerment Radio as Karen Krejcha discusses these challenges. Diagnosed with Asperger syndrome in her 40s, Karen is mom to two sons (8 and 15) also diagnosed on the autism spectrum. As Executive Director and co-founder of the nonprofit, Autism Empowerment, Karen regularly engages in conversation with autistic teens and adults as well as parents and other family members. She sees and hears the frustration from those on the spectrum who want to be respected and accepted and not seen as a burden upon society. She sees and hears from parents who want to do the best for their children but struggle navigating convoluted and conflicting systems of service that sometimes hurt more than they help. 


    Is it possible to strengthen the Autism Community?  We think so!


    Let's talk about it.

    Losing Your Parents Episode 12: Holidays + Communicating with Deceased Parents

    in Self Help

    About this episode: Today we’re talking about ways you can communicate with your deceased parents during the holidays.


    About this show:
    I have lost both of my parents to cancer in my 20’s. When I was 22, I woke up next to my dad who had died and when I was 27 I watched my mom take her last breath.


    After being present for their illness and witnessing their deaths, I had to face life as a young person without them. I decided that it was important to me to connect with other people who have also lost their parents. I’m in my 30’s now.  I write and talk about my journey through healing my grief and working through life challenges that come up using creativity and self expression.


    My blog is LosingYourParents.org and my goal is to bridge the gap between grief and joy at every opportunity.
