Helping Adults with Autism

This week, The Plain Dealer shared the story of Trudy Steuernagel and her son Sky Walker. Sky suffers from severe autism, and, in a tragically violent and sudden rage, he killed his mother last January. Extreme though it is, Sky's case raises important questions about caring for adults with autism at home and in residential settings. Wednesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation with families and care providers about the challenges and joys of life when someone else's autism is at the center.Joanna Connors Reporter, The Plain Dealer
