Where do we go in Washington state to get connected when it comes to helping individuals living with autism? What services are accessible from the state? How do we plug in? How do we navigate the often confusing and complex systems maze?
Good information leads to better choices and decisions for people on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities and differences, yet survey data shows many families say they do not get enough information to effectively participate in planning services for their family members.
This is of concern to Autism Empowerment and other advocacy and support organizations that believe clear, concise information from trusted sources is critical to every family’s ability to access resources and care for individuals on the autism spectrum.
Listen in today as Autism Empowerment Radio interviews Eva Rooks, Communication and Planning Manager for the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council.
We will talk about current priorities for the DDC and we'll learn how to plug into and navigate the WA state Informing Families, Building Trust website, blog and informational outreach.
Sponsored by the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council, in collaboration with the Division of Developmental Disabilities and others, the IFBT goal is to provide information about issues, services and supports that make a difference in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
Interested in Autism and Developmental Disabilities Advocacy in Washington? So is Autism Empowerment!
Tune in as John interviews Autism Empowerment Executive Director, Karen Krejcha as she talks about her recent weekend in Olympia. As part of a year long Disabilities Leadership Development Program, she traveled to Olympia with other self-advocates, parents and professionals. She had the opportunity to receive training, network with other advocates and no-profits, tour the State Capitol, share lunch with local legislators, learn about the legislative process and practice advocacy skills and testifying before Congress.
We will chat about a variety of topics of interest that came up during the training including Seclusion / Aversion rooms in Washington schools, the No Paid Services Caseload, Respite Care, Companion Homes, Vocational Traning and help for individuals experiencing cultural communication barriers.
Even if you don't live in Washington, you will likely find this show valuable in terms of understanding more about what kind of services our government provides versus what is provided through the private sector.
In this episode we explore some of the perceptions of individuals with disabilities. Our guest, Mary Jacob is the Executive Director of Louisiana Parent Training and Information Center and Families Helping Families of Jefferson.

This week on Autism Spectrum Radio we discuss a topic that is extremely important to many parents of young kids with autism, social skills and ability.

INNERSIGHT Means 'FREEDOM'
Advocates for the Disabled
We all know people with physical and/or mental issues limiting their abiliy to perform tasks most of us take for granted. Some have severed or non functioning limbs. Others are blind, deaf, and/or mute. Others have mental challenges. An increasing number have a combination of several of these issues.
It never ceaces to amaze me hw people with the decks stacked against them like this manage to not overcome these obsticals, but rise to great hights in areas most would believe to be impossible.

Guests: David Militello and Daniel Militello (Brothers) and Patty Johnson Militello (Mother)
Time: 7:00-9:00 pm
Date:Monday, September 29, 2014
David and Daniel are what you would refer to as autism success stories. This is as the two siblings were diagnosed with autism at an early age but have managed to deal with the condition successfully through music therapy.
They are testaments to the power of music on those in the autism spectrum. Music has been a blessing and a miracle for the family and they want to share that miracle by facilitating music therapy sessions, music lessons, and musical instruments for other autistic children. As a result, Patty Johnson Militello created a wonderful program entitled Music and Miracles for autistic children. Hear their amazing story tonight.

Welcome to Positively Autistic radio show, Autism, God's Bright Kids! Dana Susan Beasley, a homeschooling mother of an Asperger teen and wife to an Aspie husband, is your host. Today our guest is Clarinda Olinsager of AnointingtheFamily.com. She will share with us ideas how essential oils can help with Autism. Dana will also share some ideas about 10 things every teacher should know about Autism.
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.
