Deborah Soares and her husband Larry have learned a lot about the challenges facing parents of children with developmental disabilities. Their five-year-old son, Andrew is autistic. They wanted to share their experiences with other parents, and tell them they are not alone. Deborah visits Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss the free podcast she and Larry created, entitled "Andrew's Autistic World." It's an interview you don't want to miss.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
