Autism and Residential Care Programs on This American Life

My thanks to the anonymous commenter who cited the This American Life story about a family's wrenching decision to put their autistic son in a residential care program.

The story is not an easy listen. I certainly don't recommend to those coming off a three-day-weekend of intense depression rooted in their children's behavioral issues -- but it is more than worthwhile. Please forward it to anyone who could use some compassion towards autism families in the deeper trenches.

P.S. The story is a year old, true. But I fell off the autism information wagon in big way after my dad's death last spring, and am only now climbing back on.
