Posted on April 21st, 2008 by Norma
Celebrate! An autism documentary that Easter Seals Peoria-Bloomington helped put together just won a big award! The Illinois Associated Press Broadcasters Association named Autism Epidemic best documentary of the year at an award ceremony in Springfield this past Saturday.
Autism Epidemic first aired in August 2007 to spread awareness of autism and to get more children screened at an early age. The half-hour piece was written and produced for WHOI -TV by anchor Jen Christensen, and Steve Thompson, president and chief executive officer of Easter Seals Peoria-Bloomington, played an integral role in its production.
You can see part of this award-winning documentary by Clicking on the You Tube link on Jen’s parenting website.
Way to go, Jen — this is a well-deserved award!
