The Great Race to Autism Acceptance! For those with Autism or Asperger's, the challenges that we face are often hard for others to understand since ASD is often considered a hidden disability.

Autism Empowerment Radio is excited to bring on air a long-time Scouter from St. Charles, IL, Sean Williams. Sean is the father to a son with Asperger's who has found great success in scouting, achieving his Eagle rank. Sean developed The Great Race to Autism Acceptance for Scout-O-Rama 2012 to show individuals without autism a better understanding of autism can be like on a daily basis.

As Sean says, every Scout on the spectrum is like a snowflake. No too are alike.

The Great Race to Autism Acceptance was an exhibition with multiple stations and training. It was incredibly well received and his concept is one that can be duplicated in a variety of venues (not just scouting) around the world. Sean will talk with us today about the development and success of his project and give ideas on how you can develop something like this for your community.

Sean is also the founder of a Special Needs Venturing Crew that combines the values and fun of scouting with learning practical life skills.  Sean was previously a guest on Autism and Scouting Radio (our sister station) and we look forward to having him on Autism Empowerment Radio because the programs and events Sean is implementing and developing are fantastic ideas that he hopes will be replicated.
