Autism and the Family Identity
Eustacia’s story was told in the Emmy Award-winning movie Temple Grandin, and she will be exploring the importance of the family in that “Autism Equation.” Yes, your child is autistic, but who is your child and who are you?
“I’ll tell you a bit about raising Temple in the fifties, how she conquered the hurdles of childhood and has gone on to surprise us all. I’ll describe some of my own life experiences including the complicated family battle that the diagnosis of infant schizophrenia stirred up.”
“I’ll go into the neurological stumbling blocks of autism, why they take a toll on both chikd and family, and I’ll cover how current bio-neurological research is pointing us toward insightful possibilities of change.”
