This week on Autism Spectrum Radio we explore a sensitive and perhaps under addressed topic, the experience of grief and loss for children and teens with autism. In the course of our life it is inevitable that we are all touched by the loss of a loved one and yet it is not a topic we may think to prepare for. Families with a child who has autism can easily be caught at a loss for what to do or how to best support their child’s natural but painful experience of grief. This week, host Rob Haupt looks at the complexities of supporting children and teens during this vulnerable time. Rob is happy to welcome author Karla Helbert to share her insights as psychotherapist and bereavement counselor who specializes in serving the autism community. Be sure to catch this episode of Autism Spectrum Radio, Tuesday, November 13 at 11 AM.
