    Becoming Unique (Autism Spectrum Disorder) with James Charles

    in Spirituality

    Becoming Unique (Autism Spectrum Disorder) with James Charles


    Each year, one in sixty-eight children in the United States are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder - a range of neurodevelopmental challenges which can include cognitive, sensory and communicative delays. The majority of these children are diagnosed before the age of three, as modern parents have become increasingly aware of the signs to look out for and can take advantage of the strong support network now available for families effected by autism.


    Becoming Unique is a moving and informative account of one man’s journey towards Autism Spectrum Disorder.  While delivering practical and constructive advice for those living with autism, Charles also examines the positive attributes of the disorder, which he calls a diffability. It is a rare and valuable first-person narrative about living with autism.  


    James Charles grew up in Aughavas, County Leitrim, Ireland, but has lived in England for much of his life. Having trained and worked as a mental health nurse, he now manages his own Complementary Therapy and Coaching practice.

    Understanding the Autism Spectrum Disorder Grief Cycle

    in Family

    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
    Denial
    Anger or Rage
    Confusion and powerlessness
    Depression
    Guilt
    Shame or embarrassment
    Fear and panic
    Bargaining
    Hope
    Isolation
    Acceptance
    We will also do our best to answer questions that people have sent into Autism Empowerment in advance. You can reach us at info@autismempowerment.org

    Through the Eye's of a Sibling; Autism Spectrum Disorder

    in Health

    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.

    Karla Fisher - Karla's ASD / Autism Spectrum Disorder Page

    in Family

    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.

    Empowering Men with Mental Illness -- The Parker J Cole Show

    in Entertainment

    Last month, we focused on women's empowerment in different areas of life -- from purity, to boundary settings, Biblical studies, and in the midst of illness. This month, we will be focusing on men's empowerment in different areas. So join me for a series of discussions to empower men.


    On this episode of the Parker J Cole, we'll be empwering men who suffer from mental illness. The number of cases of people who have mental illness of some sort has increased over the past years. Men who have mental illness may feel pressured to keep that aspect of themsleves private, not take needed medication, or may have problems with understanding how to control the illness instead of letting it control them. We'll be answering all of those questions and scenarios with my guest co host and contributor John Kaniecki, author, pastor, and activist who has biopolar disorder.

    Nathaniel & Cheryl Rudd ~ CPS Steals Baby over Cannabis

    in Higher Education

    In this episode of Pot Talk Radio we share the story of the Rudd family regarding CPS & Marijuana.

    https://www.facebook.com/nathan.rudd.37

    https://www.gofundme.com/bringbabypeterhom

    On Sept. 27, 2015, Baby Peter was stolen at seven days old out of the hospital by CPS using lies and illegal tactics!!! My live in fiance is a qualified preschool teacher Title 22 infant first aide and cpr certified, who has internshipped teaching toddlers with severe Autism. She is one year away from finishing her Bachelor's degree in Special Education to teach K-3, and is a full time student online who is well trained in Early child development and attends a private Christian University. I myself, worked for about 5 years for the school district as a classroom aide for preschoolers with moderate to severe special needs, and I am also educated in Early Child Development. I work two jobs, and when my wife starts teaching Elementary School, then I will go back to college full time while she works and I stay home with the baby.

    We wanted a child forever, and finally, God blessed me with a son. CPS took him right out of the hospital. They asked me to interview saying that I could not see my baby unless I complied, so I complied. They did a swab test, it was inconclusive on cannabinoids, meaning it did not say one way or the other if I had used them. I had a prescription for legal medical use for permanent hard to treat pain caused by a near death auto injury years back that broke my jaw in half and off both hinges and caused pain in my spine.
