In continuing observance of April, Autism Awareness Month, today our guest will be Alina Rodescu-Pitchon, mother of 28 old Ben. Alina will talk about the challenges and rewards of raising a child with ASD.
We will also address what do parents do when they first feel their child is not developing typically, and what are the resources they can find helpful.
Alina Rodescu-Pitchon was born in Bucharest, Romania and emigrated to the US with her family as a child in 1964. She graduated from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture and Planning to go on to work in NYC. After working at I.M.Pei & Partners, Costas Kondylis, and Gal Nauer Architects, she now heads her own design practice, Pitchon Design Group. Alina also holds a Real Estate license.
She is the proud mom of Ben, 28, and lives in Wilton, CT.
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.
Arguably the most famous person in the autism community, Dr. Grandin has been advocating for individuals with autism for more than 30 years. 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.

Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
About 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a report from 2014. This represents a 30% increase from the 1 in 88 reports of children reported to have autism in 2012. White children are more likely than Black or Hispanic children to receive an autism diagnosis. And Black children and girls are more likely to have intellectual disability along with their autism. The most notable shift is the growing proportion of those who have average or above-average intelligence, rising from 30 percent in 2002 to nearly 50 percent in 2010.
Monday evening, the 50th episode of The GreenHouse FX Radio Show, we will increase our knowledge of autism... Supporting those who are deal with this diagnoses everyday... Celebrating their struggles and triumphs. There has been an increase in early diagnosis, this is a reflection of successful public awareness efforts... this Monday, join us to continue those efforts.

The Two Trees is a poignant story that gives a glimpse into the difficulties of having a high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) child in the family. As told from a sibling perspective, it is both an exploration and celebration of brotherly love despite challenging circumstances, metaphorically reflected in the growth of two trees planted at the beginning of the story. The Two Trees is a must-read for all parents and kids, ASD families, educators, and anyone who has witnessed or felt the sting of being left out, bullied, or misunderstood.
Join me on The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show with special guest Sally Meadows, singer, song writer, author and more importantly a mother. Hear her experiences raising 2 boys and the story behind her new childrens book The Two Trees.
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.
