ICAA Radio is on! As an additional free outreach service, ICAA Radio welcomes all kinds of guests related to all kinds of topics relevant to the community we serve. We like having service providers, advocates and public officials on the program to keep informed and up to date. We also hope the program helps our many listeners access services, or access charities to assist. The International Coalition for Autism and all Abilities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the public through charitable efforts, education and advocacy.Our work is centered on ensuring society grows to include, accommodate and support all citizens with all abilities. We will discuss issues relating to the Autism Spectrum and society in the aspects of education, legal, current events and other issues. We will discuss action alerts, and various cases ongoing in the community as well as ICAA charitable and public service projects. We invite you to join us in our efforts to leave our world better than how we found it. ICAA Radio guests do not represent or reflect ICAA. ICAA does not endorse ICAA Radio guests. ICAA Radio guests are independent of ICAA and ICAA Radio. ICAA does not pay guests for their appearances. To be a guest on the ICAA Radio program, contact ICAA via the website.

Upcoming Broadcasts

What is autism? Who are autistic people? What is person--first language? Is autism curable? Can you prevent autism in your children? Is autism a behavioral disorder? Why don't some people verbally speak? What does high functioning mean? What are the autism rates? Does autism cause violence? Do vaccines cause autism? Is there a prenatal test to detect autism? Can special diets recover people from autism? What therapies or medications are helpful for autism? We are going to be laying out the truth about autism on today's show. Many service providers, educators, and others within the general public have been misguided about autism and the autism community. This has had a huge impact on families and how services are provided. Doing research about autism by perusing the internet brings up tons of links and claims but it can be a sea of confusion for many people. Today, we will provide helpful information and resources for families. Thanks to the volunteers who help our radio show continue as a public service.
