Autism's Impact on Grandparents

Great story from NPR's All Things Considered about how children with autism affect their grandparents. You can read the story (link below) or listen to it.

Having a child with autism can turn parents' lives upside down. But it can also profoundly affect the lives of grandparents, according to an online survey by the Interactive Autism Network (IAN).
Preliminary results from the survey of 2,600 grandparents found that many of them responded to a grandchild's diagnosis by changing everything from where they lived to how they spent their retirement savings.
