Autism Spokesperson Network member makes TV debut

Last Friday I was on a local TV show along with one of our Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin families that is living with Autism. You might remember the blog I wrote about Gus. – he and his family were featured in an onmilwaukee.com story about how vital early diagnosis and therapy is for children diagnosed with Autism.

We shared that same message on Friday. This was my first television interview, and the show, The Morning Blend is a show I usually do not see because I am at work when it airs. The interview was live – I was nervous!

Before the TV interview, I thought about our blog Maven, Beth. At an Autism Spokesperson Network meeting in Chicago, Beth shared a story about the nervousness she’d been feeling before giving that talk. On Friday, I knew exactly how she felt.

So I went back through all we had learned at that Autism Spokesperson Network meeting. You know, so I wouldn’t freak out!

Note from Beth, the autism blog moderator:
I am flattered to think my speech at the Autism Spokesperson Network meeting influenced Bob Glowacki’s TV debut on Friday — he was fabulous! You can judge for yourself by linking to Bob’s autism TV interview online.

    Thanks Beth for your kind comment about my appearance. Gus’ mother, Christine was really powerful as a speaker. Christine is committed to telling families to seek answers no matter what. I am so proud of our staff and the way they helped Gus -Christine and the whole family.

    The story points out another missing factor in discussion on Autism…we all talk about 1:150 children who have Autism, we forget that each of them has a loved ones who are also profoundly effected and need help, hope and answers too.

    Take Care!
