Family with 5 autistic children to be profiled on Good Morning America


Sorry for the late word on this announcement to tune into Good Morning America on Monday, August 15th. Here in Los Angeles it is broadcast from 7 am - 9 am. Check local listings for the exact times in your area, but I believe Metropolitan NY area is the same time - except it is live for the East Coast. This is on the ABC Network.

The family was profiled in March of 2005 in the USA TODAY. I also found another article online at the Austin American Statesman site.

Jeanette and Patrick O'Donnell have six children, five happen to be on the Autism Spectrum. Good Morning America - Monday, August 15, 2005 7-9 am, ABC networks

***UPDATE*** The show was bumped to Tuesday, August 16, 2005 and shown during the 8 am telecast. The full story is One Family's Struggle with Autism

The family has a lot of love and laughter. It was mentioned that all the children have speech challenges. This was part of the GMA American Family series.

**UPDATE** On Sunday, February 18, 2007 the O'Donnell family will be profiled on the ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. "The only documented family in the U.S. with five autistic children will receive a much needed home. Country music star Trace Adkins performs at a benefit for the family." The show is on at 8 pm ET/PT and 6 pm Central.

If you miss the show once it has aired the website will have the details on the makeover with photos and interviews with the family. There is also a blog for the television show that you can read from the designers. I plan on having my higher functioning son view with me and hope to learn some new ideas on decorating and organizing the household. We will be taping it as well.
