Today on Autism Live: Episode III of On the Spectrum with Matt Asner debuts. Matt kicks things off with an inspirational reading of the letter his father, Emmy Award winning actor Ed Asner, wrote in response to a recent op ed piece in the LA Times about Autism Speaks. Ed, a grandfather and father to four individuals on the spectrum tells it like it is! Later Matt welcomes the talented team of Chris Stills, Kristen Stills and Michael Frondelli, together, with Matt, they are the driving force behind the yearly Light Up the Blues concert. Last year the concert rocked the Pantages Theatre raising money and awareness for Autism and Autism Speaks! Matt closes his show with a touching interview with his twelve year old son Will, who wishes his dad a Happy Birthday! Shannon rounds out the show with a refresher on dealing with challenging behavior in the classroom. This is what every parent needs to know to get the right support for their child and their child's teacher!
