The unveiling of the new Autism Empowerment website
How to plug into new Autism and Scouting training and support resources.
Updates on the Autism and Scouting Leadership Training Kit being released in November 2013.
The new Autism and Scouting Unit Locator.
Reported stories of scouting success over the past few months.
We are very excited about the positive momentum Autism Empowerment and Autism and Scouting are achieving and look forward to sharing this with you.
Today we will be doing a review of the Autism and Scouting Program and will share the progress that we are making in 2013 to promote Autism Acceptance, Enrichment, Inspiration and Empowerment within the scouting world.
As April comes to a close and Autism Acceptance Month ends, we must never forget that Autism Acceptance is an ongoing goal. Each month we have seen an increase in the spreading of autism acceptance and awareness within the scouting world and we look to keep the momentum going.
We will look at many different aspects of the Autism and Scouting program including the Autism and Scouting Leadership Training Kits and where we are in the process of their development. We'll highlight some of our recent outreach and give you an opportunity to call in with questions about our program and learn how you can get involved as a volunteer.

Now Autism and Scouting, a program of Autism Empowerment is also excited to launch its own live station called Autism and Scouting Radio. Our goal and mission of the Autism and Scouting Radio Program is to provide an additional platform for the Autism and Scouting Program to extend its worldwide reach.
Autism Empowerment's Autism and Scouting program had a banner year in helping scouts who are on the Autism Spectrum, their caregivers and the leaders who lead them.
We will take a look back at 2012 to see how we helped in the different areas that Autism Empowerment served.
We will also be looking forward to 2013 to see what is coming down the road and how we are going to be expanding the program to reach even more people. We are very excited about what we have in development!
