The Group Home/Aging Out Chronicles.
Barbara Fischkin, Autism One Radio's Maverick Mama updates listeners on the experiences of her son Dan, 22, who aged out of high school in June and entered a temporary group home run by the state of New York in August. Maverick Mama will be following her son Dan's story throughout 2010, as he moves into a permanent home and continues his journey into adulthood. This show speaks, in part, about services that are cut when an individual with autism becomes an adult. It depicts happy moments too, as well!

Dr. John Schaut is a psychologist who has worked for 18 years with men and women returning from military combat. He is also the father of a son with Autism. Here he speaks with Barbara Fischkin about stress and Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSS) and how it affects parents of individuals with Autism who experience their own "very long tour." And what to do about it. This is a complicated issue and some may want to listen more than once.
