Former Anthrax guitarist, Dan Spitz and his wife, Candi are famous autism parents. In the past they both spoke publicly about their struggles living a busy, rock star lifestyle and two young children with special needs. Candi seemed stressed but hopeful for the young boys. We discussed how certain rhetoric about autism in the media can keep autism families--even celebrities-- from feeling empowered or hopeful. Sadly, this week it was reported that Dan and Candi were involved in a pretty heated dispute over the Christmas holiday. Where were the little boys? Does Candi feel that she and her boys are safe? Has this happened before? How is everyone holding up? Dan Spitz now performs with Red Lamb and was arrested on Christmas morning for suspected domestic violence according to reports. The images of Dan and Candi Spitz for this episode are shared from Google images. Candi's full interview with ICAA Radio can be seen at the ICAA website.
