ICAA Radio


United States, EnglishEducation

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.
