Autism Speaks has been out celebrating itself even more than usual over the past few days.
Celebrities, media, and even some politicians have joined in as Speaks refers to itself as "autism champions."
Autistics and allied activists have taken over each hashtag in Speaks' recent Twitter campaigns, and rained on the party of the usual fear and loathing enough to make a bit of a dent.

Jennie Walker talks with Cassandra Kubinski on her music and some recent charity collaborations that are making headlines.
CASSANDRA (born Cassandra Eileen Kubinski in Hartford, CT) is a songwriter, singer, actress, producer, and yogi. Her latest release is her 4th album JUST BEING MYSELF (produced by Edd Kalehoff, the composer/producer behind the music of Monday Night Football, The View, Good Morning America, the YES Network , Disney, Carnival Cruise Lines, and artists like Faith Hill, Britney Spears, and Sarah Vaughn). “This one’s more cinematic than my previous albums, and more fun,” offers Cassandra. “Each song is like a mini-movie, and my writing is more honest than I’ve ever been before” And whether she’s writing about love, bittersweet memories, partying, air travel, or the Big Apple, that real-world honesty meets a dramatic, sensual swirl of cinematic images and metaphors influenced by her earliest musical experiences: Billy Joel and other songwriters, Disney movies, musical theatre, classical and jazz. Several music videos have already been released, including Just Being Myself, the classical/dance/pop anthem of being awesome, and Windblown Girl, a country-tinged romance story. The album also features pop/jazz trumpeter Chris Botti on the lush, Paris-inspired number “Je T’aime”, and a re-imagined version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”
Today, Dana will have a very special guest and she's excited to have her: Christy Martin, marketing coordinator with. CBP Centers. CBP Centers is a multidisciplinary clinic specializing in treating diseases and disorders of the brain and central nervous system. CBP Centers was established as the only clinic in North America with this level of technology in 2014. They work with patients suffering from concussions and tbi, to people needing relief from PTSD and strokes, including conditions like Autism, Aspergers and Cerebral Palsy. As marketing coordinator, Christy has helped connect the clinic with doctors and groups around town such as the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado, Autism Speaks and many more. Christy's goal is to bring awareness to the community of the many complicated brain injuries and disorders people in Colorado Springs are struggling with. She also wants to bring hope and send a message to those searching for treatment and answers.
Dana is the owner of AngelArts, a Creative Arts Agency and Publishing House. Seven years ago, she discovered that her son and husband both have Aspergers. It's opened up a whole new world for her and her family. Yes, there are incredible challenges, but she chooses to see how God has blessed her family through it.
Her son created a painting that became an inspiration for her Autism Awareness product line, Autism: God's Bright Kids. She also is publishing a book called "Angels in the Midst: Rising Above Autism and Aspergers," a collection of stories, poetry, videos, and artwork about how God uses ordinary people in the challenge of living with Autism and how He works in the midst of it. She is looking for submissions, sponsors, and nonprofits to give a portion of the revenue to. The book is due out in April 2015.

Today we welcome Aaron Krause to Autism and Scouting Radio. Aaron is a new Eagle Scout, recent high school graduate and college student who regularly advocates for himself and for others on the autism spectrum. His Eagle Project was a video called "All Are Welcome" which was produced to help others know that all abilities are welcome in the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the ELCA. This video was shown at the Urban Autism Summit and during the opening for the International Summit on Disability Employment held in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2014.
We will be talking about Aaron's journey within scouting. Aaron started as a Tiger Cub Scout and continued for many years in the program, earning his Arrow of Light and later transitioning into Boy Scouts. We will also be asking Aaron abut his self-advocacy work. Aaron is a big believer in promoting autism acceptance and empowerment. He has testified at the Wisconsin state Capitol on a variety of autism-related issues including insurance reform, scholarships and school vouchers. He has also been interviewed on radio and TV.
