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 email@example.com
Karen with Autism Empowerment Radio goes on location at Intel to interview Karla Fisher, an adult autistic who educates and supports autistics, parents and those who seek to learn more about autism spectrum disorder through her Facebook community, Karla's ASD page.
Karla's ASD page is a perspective page from an adult autistic who in her words is "Not Fighting Autism, working with it." As a Senior Program Manager / Engineering Manager at Intel, Karla has worked in the high tech field for over 20 years and is very passionate about her job.
This is the 1st of a series of 2 interviews initially recorded on April 6th, 2013. Although this particular broadcast was recorded second, we are playing it first as it gives a strong introduction of Karla and her back story.
Karla covers a variety of topics including a bit about what it was like for Karla growing up and how things changed for her after her father passed away and she received an autism diagnosis. She discusses her conceding phase where she tried to "fix" her autism.
Other topics include being accepted in the high tech industry and being accepted online. We talk about the importance of autistics supporting other autistics and how that isn't always the case in some Facebook parent support groups.
In our 2nd interview we discuss Token Theory and Autistic Burnout, two topics which Karla talks about regularly and extensively at Karla's ASD page.
Karla Fisher has a very impressive bio. She is a 2012 GRASP Distinguished Spectrumite Medal honoree. Important parts of her life story are published as chapter 4 in Temple Grandin's book, "Different, Not Less". Karla founded Portland's first ASD Adult/Teen Mentor program and regularly teaches doctors, teachers, professionals and parents about ASD.

Autism Spectrum Disorder affects 1 in every 68 children according to the CDC's Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network. As a developmental disability, Autism can create social challenges in communication, behavior and one's ability to learn.
While signs of Autism may arise during early childhood, research results from the International Meeting for Autism Research for 2014 have showed that Autistic symptoms for adults living with the disorder decreased among 1/3 to half of more than 400 people over the course of 10 years starting in 1998.

Today’s guest, Stasia Ward Kehoe, the author of The Sound of Letting Go, a poignant young adult novel about living with an autistic sibling, will help us understand the many challenges faced by families living with children on the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The protagonist, Daisy, a musical prodigy, has been the “perfect” sibling to her brother Steven. In fact, to a large extent her life is organized around his needs. Not only is she responsible for “baby sitting" which constricts her teen-age schedule, it’s also her “job” to be sensitive to his many special needs. For example, certain tonal sounds – noises too loud or not loud enough -- can lead Steven to self-harm, including wringing his hands until they’re bloody. Sometimes he can be physically violent, leaving Daisy and her parents vulnerable to physical harm. When Daisy’s parents decide to place Steven in an institution without consulting her, she is devastated.
Stasia Ward Kehoe grew up performing on stages from New Hampshire to Washington, DC. She holds a BA in English from Georgetown University and an MA in Performance Studies from New York University.
While working at Random House Children's Publishing, Stasia read her way through the entire children's backlist. She realized then that she found a focus for her writing - young adults. Since then Stasia had children and left full time work for freelance writing. Now she lives in western Washington State with her husband and four sons.
Stasia's novels include Audition and The Sound of Letting Go. For more information about Stasia's books please go to her website: http://www.stasiawardkehoe.com/
