April was an incredibly meaningful and productive month for Autism Empowerment. Our Community Outreach program had us presenting, exhibiting and being a part of a variety of different programs, trainings and special events. It started with the Easter Egg Hunt for Acceptance of All Abilities on March 30th (not technically April but a good roll in!) where Spectrums Magazine debuted and so did Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum. (Our Executive Director, Karen has a story on page 13.) Other events for the month included a World Autism Awareness day event, Sensory Play Day, a trip to Seattle for the Jefferson Awards and meeting with HeART of the Spectrum, local trainings and consultations, the Secret of the Songshell relaunch party and benefit concert, the Autism Society of Oregon walkathon and the Southwest Washington Special Education Conference and Resource Fair. Our Autism and Scouting program made great strides and also debuted a new Acceptance and Awareness patch which is now being shipped around the world with the proceeds to benefit the Autism and Scouting program. We also had the chance to meet some very fascinating people and add some great new shows to our Autism Empowerment Radio library. We're even launching a Dad's group in May. Lots of great stuff going on. Listen in as we share highlights from the past month and talk about where we're headed in May. The Autism Empowerment community belongs to ALL of us! Please join in and be part of our Acceptance Village!
