Sandi Anderson has been an active Autism Tree Project Foundation volunteer since its inception 9 years ago. She and her husband, Jeff have two adult sons on the autism spectrum. Her many years of experience advocating, homeschooling, and special needs trainings in academics; health and life skills enable her to encourage others in their journey with a vast resource of connections and creative solutions. Sandi is a founding member/chairman for Jeremiah's Ranch, a group home community being established in Fallbrook, CA.
Together with her son Joel, Sandi enjoys many ATPF projects including resource fairs, public speaking at schools, art shows, golf tournaments, television and radio shows, fundraising, and Parent Mentor programs.
Their all time favorite accomplishment has been founding the ATPF & University of San Diego Football Mentor Program in 2009, where football players volunteer to be matched up with a child of any age with autism to have fun throughout the football season and special events. All these experiences have provided Sandi and Joel to now travel internationally sharing autism awareness and acceptance.
It's understandable that sexuality may not be the primary focus for many cancer patients, at least not right away. Sexuality is an incredibly personal topic, and each person's experiences, feelings, and expectations are unique. But at some point, whether because of sexual changes, relationship issues, or difficulties with fertility, patients realize the impact of cancer on their sexuality. By learning about how your sexuality is likely to change and getting suggestions for healing, you become a partner and advocate in your own care.
Today we are delighted to welcome well-known and respected autism expert, Dr. Stephen Shore to Autism Empowerment Radio.
We will be talking about his personal journey with autism and will also be discussing autism advocacy for youth and adults, disclosure, education and employment.
Diagnosed with "Atypical Development and strong autistic tendencies" and "too sick" for outpatient treatment Dr. Stephen Shore was recommended for institutionalization back in the 1960s. Nonverbal until four, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife, and others, Stephen is now a professor at Adelphi University where his research focuses on matching best practice to the needs of people with autism.
In addition to working with children and talking about life on the autism spectrum, Stephen presents and consults internationally on adult issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, advocacy, and disclosure as discussed in his books Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Ask and Tell: Self-advocacy and Disclosure for People on the Autism Spectrum, the critically acclaimed Understanding Autism for Dummies., and the newly released DVD Living along the Autism Spectrum: What it means to have Autism or Asperger Syndrome.
President emeritus of the Asperger’s Association of New England and former board member of the Autism Society, Dr. Shore serves in the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association, United States Autism and Asperger Association, and other autism related organizations.
Young women CAN and DO get breast cancer. Join us as we welcome the leadership from Young Survival Coalition (Jennifer Merschdorf, CEO and Stacey Lewis, Chief Program Officer and Deputy Chief Executive) to talk about what's being done to address this healthcare disparity and meet the underserved needs of this population. Breast cancer survivor (and former Stupid Cancer Show co-host) Lisa Bernhard in the survivor spotlight!
When parents receive a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder for their child, life as they knew it before is never the same.
Although a parent may not realize it or understand the complexities, there is a grief process that often occurs when a child is diagnosed with autism, Asperger's or other special needs. This differs from the process that one might experience with the death of a close family member or friend.
Today we are going to talk about the Autism Grief Cycle and Tips for Parents and Grandparents while working through each stage.
Karen and John from Autism Empowerment will explain some of what they went through when their two sons were diagnosed with autism and Asperger syndrome respectfully. Karen will also talk about how she felt after she received her own autism spectrum diagnosis. (Yes, parents on the autism spectrum can still go through the grief cycle for their own children on the spectrum!)
Here are some of the topics we'll cover with tips for working through each:
Shock and disbelief
Anger or Rage
Confusion and powerlessness
Shame or embarrassment
Fear and panic
We will also do our best to answer questions that people have sent into Autism Empowerment in advance. You can reach us at email@example.com
Autism and Scouting Radio and the Autism and Scouting Program are both part of Autism Empowerment -- a 501(c)3 public charity dedicated to providing Acceptance, Enrichment, Inspiration and Empowerment within the autism and Asperger communities locally, regionally and worldwide.

We'll talk about:
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.

Ken was cancer free for a number of years before being diagnosed with melanoma, and then head and neck cancer. Ken states that we all get gifts from going through cancer. Cancer is different from other illnesses.” He explains to Dr. Weizer how he was significantly “smarter,” and more intelligent since cancer. Ken is all in with this journey called cancer. He has a totally different outlook and his personality is different now. Ken said to Dr. Weizer, “we all receive different gifts, you just may not know what yours will be yet.”
Ionized Alkaline Water: Do We Need It To Prevent Or Overcome Cancer - And/Or Simply To Get And Stay Healthy? I get at least 5 questions a week asking about alkaline water, and in specific, ionized alkaline water. So I realized that I had to get off the fence and share my perspective, based on more than 5 decades of global travel and research. As well as living with many healthy, long living cultures along the way. You may be very surprised by my answer to this question.
You know how we're always told to follow and copy the people who have what we want and don't have? Usually we're referring to business-related situations and goals. But this philosophy can most definitely be applied to health. On tonight's Kick Cancer In The Can™ Weekly Quick Tip, I challenge you to really examine the habits and practices of the Blue Zone Centenarians...and just do what they are doing! Lots of great info packed into less than 10 minutes!
