The Swell Life...A Real Family Raising a Child with Autism

 August 5, 2011

I was recently made aware of a new program debuting ont he Oprah network, OWN this Saturday.  It's called The Swell Life and it’s about the Paskowitzes, a remarkable family raising a child with autism.  Unlike the majority of reality television, this show is actually real.  It follows a real family dealing with their very real issues - their teenage daughter moving in with her boyfriend, a husband and wife struggling to share child-rearing responsibilities, and, of course, a family struggling to raise a boy with autism. 

Autism affects roughly 1 in 150 people, worldwide.  There are over 2 million people with autism in the United States alone.  Raising a child with autism can be a trying and alienating experience, and this show charts that journey in an honest and un-staged fashion.

The Swell Life will be running this Saturday on the Oprah Winfrey Network from 12:00 – 5:00 ET.

Just thought you'd like to know.
