    Autism Spectrum Disorder: Collaborative Care for Varied Needs

    in Health

    April 9, 2015: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 68 children in the United States have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. Boys are five times more likely than girls to have ASD. And even though ASD can be diagnosed by age 2, many children aren’t diagnosed until after age 4.


    One thing children with ASD have in common is that their disorder can be treated by a range of therapists who have individual specialties but overlapping goals.


    In this episode of Move Forward Radio, Christine Baksi talks about her 4-year-old son Sam who was diagnosed with ASD at the age of 2, and is currently benefitting from a wide range of therapies.  Her son's physical therapist joins her to discuss the collaborative team approach to help children with ASD grow physically and emotionally.

    in Family

    We are thrilled to welcome Temple Grandin back to our show. Our conversation will focus on what she feels best supported her success in life and the advice she has to offer for parents of children with autism.

In 2010, Grandin delivered the TED talk “The world needs all kinds of minds.” Grandin’s own experience with autism has informed her numerous books on the subject including My Life in Pictures which was adapted for the award-winning HBO film. 


    Born on August 29, 1947, in Boston, Massachusetts, Temple Grandin was diagnosed with autism as a child and went on to pursue work in psychology and animal science. She has become a leading advocate for autistic communities and has also written books and provided consultation on the humane treatment of animals. 


    Grandin has been recognized by the academic community and the general public for her work. In 2009, she was named a fellow of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. She is the recipient of several honorary degrees, and has been featured on a range of television and radio programs.


    In 2010, HBO released an Emmy Award winning film on Grandin’s life which continues to strike a chord with audiences.  Temple’s willingness to honestly share her challenges as well as share her passionate perspective with depth and resonance has made her a very popular (and busy) speaker and presenter.

    Coaches Powering Forward for Autism with Pat Skerry

    in Family

    This year, a total of 238 teams (15 women’s), as many as 150 officials and lots of broadcasters showed up to support Autism Awareness Weekend in college basketball. Throughout the weekend, coaches, officials and broadcasters raised autism awareness by donning the blue Autism Speaks puzzle piece pin during college basketball games. In all, more than 3,000 coaches, staff, administrators, and officials were wearing pins and spreading the word.


    Spearheaded by NCAA basketball coaches Pat Skerry and Tom Herrion, the program provides coaches, their teams, schools and fans with opportunities to raise awareness, fundraise and advocate for the needs of people affected by autism.  


    Pat Skerry has completely revitalized the Towson men's basketball program and brought the Tigers back into the national spotlight. Skerry, who took over a program that had endured 15 straight losing seasons, wasted little time in righting the ship.

    Skerry, a 21-year coaching veteran, has succeeded in changing the culture of the Towson men's basketball program. During his first semester as head coach, his players posted the highest GPA for a Towson men's basketball team in over a decade.


    A native of Medford, Mass., Skerry played collegiately at Tufts from 1989-92 where he was a two-time team captain and garnered All-New England honors. As a point guard, he recorded a school-record 650 assists during his career - a mark that still ranks as the 17th best in NCAA Division III history. His 198 assists in 1990-91 is a Tufts single-season record. He also is fifth on the school's career steals list with 95. 

    Pat and his wife, Kristen, have two sons, Ryan and Owen.
