Interested in Autism and Developmental Disabilities Advocacy in Washington? So is Autism Empowerment!  

Tune in as John interviews Autism Empowerment Executive Director, Karen Krejcha as she talks about her recent weekend in Olympia. As part of a year long Disabilities Leadership Development Program, she traveled to Olympia with other self-advocates, parents and professionals. She had the opportunity to receive training, network with other advocates and no-profits, tour the State Capitol, share lunch with local legislators, learn about the legislative process and practice advocacy skills and testifying before Congress.

We will chat about a variety of topics of interest that came up during the training including Seclusion / Aversion rooms in Washington schools, the No Paid Services Caseload, Respite Care, Companion Homes, Vocational Traning and help for individuals experiencing cultural communication barriers. 

Even if you don't live in Washington, you will likely find this show valuable in terms of understanding more about what kind of services our government provides versus what is provided through the private sector.
