This week, a family from Parma steps before the U.S. Supreme Court - at the center of the case: their autistic son and the tens of thousands of dollars needed every year just to educate him. With the number of autism diagnoses on the rise, the question of who pays to educate autistic children is becoming more pressing. And of course, it takes a lot more than just money to teach an autistic child how to make a friend. It takes specialized knowledge, patience and a lot of love. Join us for a conversation about educating the autistic, Tuesday morning on The Sound of Ideas.


Dr. Christine Cook, Cuyahoga County MRⅅ Nicole Gerami, Western Reserve Speech & Hearing Partners; Barb Jarjisian, parent of an autistic son; Leslie Sinclair, Cleveland Clinic Center for Autism; Susan Rubinyi, author, Natural Genius: The Gift of Asperger's Syndrome
