Creative Ways to Raise Awareness for Autism
January 15, 2013
Hosted by Rob Haupt
This week on Autism Spectrum Radio we discuss the continuing need to promote autism awareness, education and inclusion. Unfortunately the increased rate of autism diagnoses does not naturally equate to more community awareness. In many cases, the peers of our kids with autism can be powerful advocates for creating an informed school experience and more hopeful future of inclusion. This week, host Rob Haupt explores some of the ways autism awareness is being approached with our kids. Rob is excited to welcome two of the young creators of The Six Degree Project a group that is gaining great media attention for their innovative celebrity connection campaign for autism awareness. Be sure to catch this episode of Autism Spectrum Radio, Tuesday, January 15th at 11 AM.
