Knowing there’s something is wrong with your child and getting no confirmation or support from doctors can be the loneliest feeling in the world. Figuring out what’s wrong and how to help that child reach his potential can become a mission. In this podcast I talk with Amalia Starr, author of Raising Brandon: Creating a Path to Independence for your Adult ‘Kid’ with Autism & Special Needs (Mountain Star Publishing, 2009). Amalia’s memoir pulls no punches as she discusses the reality of raising a child with autism and what happens when that child becomes an adult.
