    Missing Piece Autism Awareness Show - Meet the host Dianne Porter

    in Business

    MISSING PIECE AWARENESS – Building relationships for businesses and autism families


    To simply be aware of autism is not enough. Autism Awareness for us is providing the knowledge of autism and how families and members of the community are impacted. This understanding is implicit in our definition of autism awareness so that all members of a community can be empowered to create effective change. Awareness cannot be a static state. It is through active awareness, empowering people provided with an understanding the means to create change that acceptance can occur. This show will focus on the out of the box thinking and actions being taken by businesses, autistic individuals and families with autism to work together to create fully inclusive and accepting community environments.


    Missing Piece Awareness trains, certifies, supports and promotes mainstream businesses. We train the staff to provide autism-accepting customer service in welcoming environments, while guiding the management team in implementing seemingly-simple accommodations-but are ones that parents and families living with autism embrace and truly value. We individualize each and every training, proposed accommodation and recommendation to address each company’s goals, industry, demographic and needs. We are the only company in the country doing this- so it’s an exciting time for us, while we educate the public about what we do and gain an army of supporters who believe in our mission. It is a true learning curve for most potential clients and business owners as we create a new standard for businesses.

Reauthorization legislation, called Autism CARES, is now moving through Congress. As a result of the law, over $1.7 billion in federal funding dedicated for autism has been provided to the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Human Resources and Services Administration. An additional $122 million was appropriated in 2009 and 2010 through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

    50. The FX of Autism Awareness

    in Lifestyle

    Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.


    About 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a report from 2014. This represents a 30% increase from the 1 in 88 reports of children reported to have autism in 2012. White children are more likely than Black or Hispanic children to receive an autism diagnosis. And Black children and girls are more likely to have intellectual disability along with their autism. The most notable shift is the growing proportion of those who have average or above-average intelligence, rising from 30 percent in 2002 to nearly 50 percent in 2010. 


    Monday evening, the 50th episode of The GreenHouse FX Radio Show, we will increase our knowledge of autism... Supporting those who are deal with this diagnoses everyday... Celebrating their struggles and triumphs. There has been an increase in early diagnosis, this is a reflection of successful public awareness efforts... this Monday, join us to continue those efforts.

    Autism Acceptance & Awareness beyond April: A Call to Empowerment Year Round

    in Current Events

    As April comes to a close and we end Autism Acceptance month for 2014, how as individuals, family members and community members do we continue to facilitate positive change beyond Autism Awareness?


    What steps should we take to promote a meaningful call to action for Acceptance both within the Autism and Asperger community and our world at large?


    How can we tame some of the infighting among organizations and individuals within the autism community and work together toward a common goal of providing meaningful services, support and resources to help youth and adults on the autism spectrum and their families?


    We welcome you to join Autism Empowerment Radio as Autism Empowerment co-founders Karen and John Krejcha share about the activities that Autism Empowerment has been involved with in April and how those activities are sparking meaningful change locally and throughout the nation.


    You will learn about our Autism Serves Volunteerism program.


    You will learn about Ambassadors for Acceptance of All Abilities.


    You will be called to positive action. We all have gifts to give. We all have positive ways we can serve in changing the world for the better and in the process, improving our own life trajectory as well.
