Autism in the Media

More evidence that autism is catching the attention of that double edged sword, big media:

Autism Speaks Co-Founder Suzanne Wright will appear on ABC's Emmy
Award-winning daytime talk show The View this coming Wednesday, Jan. 18,
to discuss Autism Speaks' work to increase public awareness and raise funds to facilitate research, as well as the importance of early diagnosis. Check your local TV listings to find out when and where The View airs in your area.

Dr. Phil is doing a show on Asperger Syndrome which will air on Tuesday,
1/17/06. One of the families featured is from Ohio and includes a 15-year-old
teenager with ASD.

Anyone wanting to hear what a 13 year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome has to say about Autism Speaks ought to listen to the free audio podcast put out by Midnight In Chicago entitled "Special Feature Interview with Douglas Giesel and An Update Interview with Lewis Schofield."

His opinion is hilarious and comes at the end of the podcast.
