Spectrums Magazine was created by Courtney Freitag, an Oregon mom of a child on the autism spectrum. Courtney wanted to help individuals and families along the way in their autism journey and had a vision for Spectrums. This free grassroots community magazine hopes to minimize much of the fragmented, siloed approach parents can experience with finding information and resources. Today, Karen with Autism Empowerment Radio sits down with Courtney to talk about the magazine's premiere issue which is being distributed in Oregon and Southwest Washington in late March and April 2013. Spectrums Magazine is the only of its kind in the region. Both the printed magazine and website have the goal of centralizing information and being the go-to resource for parents and individuals on the autism spectrum, no matter where they’re at in the autism journey and where they fall on the spectrum. Combined with thoughtful editorial stories, Spectrums Magazine hopes to create a newsroom and archive of helpful news articles and information. Spectrums Magazine is a way to give back by building a strong community and fostering dialogue to find the positive in living along the autism spectrum. Spectrums Magazine's Editorial Advisory Board includes Genevieve Athens, Autism Lifespan Coach, Michael Brooke, PsyD, Brooke Psychologists, Amy Donaldson, from Portland State University's Autism & Child Language Disorders Laboratory, Karen Krejcha, co-founder and Executive Director of Autism Empowerment and Jody Wright from Providence's Swindells Resource Center.
