Emily Colson hunched over her 9-year-old son, Max, attempting to calm him as he had an emotional meltdown in the store aisle. As the other shoppers looked on, Emily felt overwhelmed and alone. Her autistic son's tantrums were a near-daily routine, but that didn't make dealing with her son's behavior any easier. On this broadcast, Emily is joined by her father, author and speaker Chuck Colson, as she discusses the trials and joys of raising a child with autism -- a neurological disorder that impairs the ability to communicate, process information and interact socially.
