If someone had told me ten years ago that in the future I would be hosting a talk radio show called “Everyday Autism Miracles” I would have assured them were off their nut. Ten years ago what I knew about Autism couldn’t have filled a Dixie cup and I wasn’t interested in changing the situation. Autism scared the crap out of me. As the saying goes time changes everything. Autism doesn’t scare me anymore. What scares me now are people who think like I used to and are too afraid to even learn about Autism.
As we get ready to lauch the second season of Everyday Autism Miracles this week I am excited about all of the new information there is to share about Autism, all of the hope, grants, research, funding, biomeds, therapies and programs that are turning the tide.
There is still a lot to be done but there is much to celebrate! This season on Everyday Autism Miracles we are going to be talking about help for military families affected by Autism, the current status of insurance coverage for Autism treatments, how to get funding for Autism therapies and a program that is going to level the playing field and make it possible for all children with Autism to receive treatment. We’re going to continue talking to experts and parents who are “getting it done.”
We are going to keep talking about Autism, so that in ten years time there will be no need to host a radio show about Autism. If know a child with Autism join in the conversation on Fridays at 2pm Eastern Standard Time and 11am Pacific time by visiting www.toginet.com.
