    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

    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.

    Autism In Love

    in Parents

    A film that will make you smile, cry and most importantly, think.  Brilliant documentary about autism and the emotion of love. 


    Guests Matt Fuller/Director


    Carolina Groppa/Producer


    Autism in Love is a feature length documentary that explores the lives of four autistic adults as they pursue and manage romantic relationships.


    The manifestations of autism affect everyone a little differently.


    What is seldom found are stories about what happens once these kids grow up; what happens after the sleepless nights, years of therapies, special schooling and exhaustive treatments? What happens when children with autism become adults with autism and want to have lives of their own?


    Unfortunately, when it comes to romantic relationships, people with autism have a distinct disadvantage. Being plagued by this developmental disorder jeopardizes the core characteristics of a relationship - communication and social interaction. Ostensibly it seems that some may never truly experience romantic love, or at least love by a typical definition. However, we know this to be false. We have innumerable instances of people with autism falling in love and having meaningful romantic relationships.


    AUTISM IN LOVE has captured those yet unexplored experiences. We've harnessed the power of cinema to reveal the truths of this otherwise marginalized community, and we're presenting a personal and critical perspective on the most important aspect of the human condition... love.
