TopicResources for parents of children with autism
BackgroundJan has been working for the past 14 years at community Autism Resources, an information, referral and service agency located in South Eastern Massachusetts. CAR provides a wide variety of services for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, their families, and the professionals who live in Southeastern Massachusetts.
SynopsisIn this lively exchange with a Parent Resource Specialist, Jan Randall illustrates the value of guidance and support for families dealing with autism. In the face of isolation and disregard from school and medical professionals, Jan found support in shared community activities and resources. She was successful in drawing on her intuition and innate skills to create a calming, productive space for connecting to her child’s special needs. The techniques of releasing anger and distress are illustrated in the “Magic of Now” on Dr. Roxanne’s guided imagery / relaxation CD.
