AUTISM BRAINSTORM: Guy Talk
Sunday March 8th at 9:00 PM Eastern Time
An African-American Perspective on Raising Children with ASD


AUTISM BRAINSTORM: GUY TALK with Dr. Robert Naseef

 MARCH, 2015
Every child diagnosed on the spectrum is a unique individual growing up in a particular family setting. However, there is substantial evidence that children of color are diagnosed later on the average and frequently misdiagnosed. What is the lived experience of African- American fathers raising children with autism?  Not just the similarities but the important and significant differences.

This Sunday, our special contributor is Dr. Michael Hannon who has lived and researched from this perspective. His doctoral research is entitled, "Love Him and Everything Else Will Fall in Place: An Analysis of Narratives of African-American Fathers of Childen with Autism Spectrum Disorders."

Join us this Sunday, March 8, and you can message the panel discussion in progress with questions and comments. If you can't make it our conversation will be archived on YouTube.

GUY TALK is a series of discussions on specific topics envisioned as an online resource to support fathers and strengthen families. Each month there will be several participants on the live video feed from their webcams with psychologist Robert Naseef as the facilitator, hosted by Kathleen Tehrani of  the AUTISM BRAINSTORM Community on Google+
