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.
Nurse anesthetist, Sym Cusimano Rankin, RN, CRNA witnessed an alarming increase in chronic and autoimmune diseases; and as a mother, she has seen her son's journey of recovery from autism. Autistic children often undergo medical and dental procedures requiring anesthesia. All anesthetic agents have relative risks and benefits. Special caution is warranted with agents that effect methylation and mitochondrial function.
Get the tools for an informed conversation with your anesthesiologist about unique medical problems, so better decisions can be made about choice of agents. Also, we’ll discuss pre-op and post-op steps to help your child recover with the right detoxification support.
We are often asked what safe anesthesia procedures are for children on the spectrum and/or with MTHFR....well....the quintessential expert is on board tonight people....join us!

It is estimated that 1 in 68 births is diagnosed with autism. (CDC, 2014). Autism is a life long developmental disorder, and as yet there is no cure. Raise awareness with Charlotte View, listen and share. In 2006, Mariame Boujlil, a mother of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, founded the 501(c)(3), non profit organization, "World Alliance for Families & Children" WAFAC, Inc. With over 100 members it holds the mission to support individuals with Autism and their families, by expanding and enhancing opportunities to improve quality of life. On October 25 of 2014, WAFAC obtained from the Mayor of Charlotte, Daniel G. Clodfelter, a Proclamation of "Blue Angels Day".
Autism is used to describe someone who lives in a world of his/her own. In medical terms, autism is a brain-based developmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate, be with other people, and engage in developmentally appropriate behaviours. Children do not “outgrow” autism but symptoms may lessen or change as the child develops and receives educational interventions.
WAFAC has developed several programs that will be explained during our interview, including: Social Skill Education; Life Skill Education;
Recreational Programs; Connections Parent Support Groups; Special Interest Program expansions Family Gatherings; Autism Awareness presentations in the community. Mariame will talk about their After_School/Respite program as well the construction of the "Multi-sensory Room"
Join us to break the myths and learn the truth about autism!
