Discover what’s possible when love transforms grief into acceptance.
Jamiel Owens is the host and creator of The Ausome Show, a co-host of The Ben & Jay Show, and an all-around public server. As the father of a 12-year-old boy with autism, Jamiel encourages other fathers to open up about their feelings regarding their children’s diagnoses.
In today’s conversation, Jamiel shares what it was like to learn about his son’s autism, how he’s evolved as a father, and what his son has taught him about life.
He describes the challenges of raising an autistic child in the Black community and offers possible solutions that could help improve communication between law enforcement and families impacted by disabilities.
