LLP 226: A Black Father Raising Autistic Children

Let's talk about raising autistic children…

This week's episode of Lunch and Learn with Dr. Berry comes fresh off the heat heels of the 2022 Autism in Black conference. I am giving a mini recap of the said event as well as briefly discussing the topic of black fathers raising autistic children. I had the amazing opportunity to give a closing keynote presentation on day 1 of the conference and I spoke about the importance of Black fathers in the lives of their Autistic children.

As a father of two autistic children and husband of an autistic spouse, I have had the unique experience to balance out the level of care and responsibilities required to do the job but I am aware that without great support, Black fathers are unlikely to succeed as a whole.

The following topics will be covered in today's episode 226:

  • Recap of 2022 Autism in Black Conference
  • Discussion on the importance of black fathers raising their autistic children
  • Lack of research associated with black fathers and autistic children
  • Importance of community & support for black fathers

Listen to today's audio episode, with the theme “A Black parent Raising Autistic Children,” as I talk about the need & importance for Black fathers to find support especially early in the journey of raising autistic children.
