In this episode of Autism Spectrum Radio Dr. Bill Frea takes a step back and looks at autism from a parental perspective. Dr. Frea will also focus on the resources available to parents of children with autism. In particular we will highlight the work of Autism Speaks and the excellent service they provide for the autism community. Parents are truly the unsung heroes of autism. We look forward to talking about some of the best strategies, and resources parents can employ in the care of their children. Dr. Frea is happy to welcome a very special guest, Matt Asner. We will discuss Matt’s role as Executive Director for Autism Speaks Southern California, and how being the parent of child with autism has affected his life.
