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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

In general, how much education does a physician or psychiatrist get in med school around ADHD? Is there an impact on ADHD by such levels of education? ADHD stimulant medications are Schedule II drugs. How does that affect those who prescribe ADHD stimulant medications? Why is education and being in touch with your expectations important when seeking a professional who will be prescribing stimulants? Answers to these questions and more when we interview clinical psychologist Dr. Thomas E. Brown (www.DrThomasEBrown.com). If you are seeking a prescriber or have not found the right prescriber for you, this show is a must for you.
