A Wider World for kids with autism

Parker receives services at Easter Seals Bay Area's Early Intervention Autism ProjectEarlier this year Easter Seals Bay Area was contacted by the PBS show A Wider World. Roger McCarville, the show’s host, had heard about Easter Seals Bay Area’s Early Intervention Autism Project and wanted to feature us on his show.

The Early Intervention Autism Project was the recipient of a Safeway Empowerment grant last year. The grant allowed us to expand the program from beyond the pilot stage into communities across our service area. We were thrilled that A Wider World wanted to track our progress.

What was even more thrilling was to see the finished product — the PBS show recently aired in twelve different markets! Roger, the host of the show, is an individual with a physical disability. He dedicates his show to, in his own words, “giving hope to the challenged by showing them that there are others like them who have overcome obstacles and misconceptions in order to lead normal, fulfilling lives.”

Roger interviewed one of our Early Intervention staff, and he talked with a family receiving our services. He interviewed me for the piece too. Throughout the day, both on and off camera, Roger went beyond the typical interview questions. He made a genuine effort to connect with each of us individually.

Roger kept us laughing all day, and he was a pleasure to work with. He was truly interested in the work we do and the individuals we serve everyday through the Early Intervention Autism Project. We’ve received numerous calls and emails of inquiry, kudos, and support ever since the show aired on PBS, and subsequently on YouTube. Thanks to Roger and his team at A Wider World for their support of Easter Seals, Safeway and our work with the ASD population!

    At this time it appears like BlogEngine is the best blogging

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!

    Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Yo Guys, My name is Avinash. I am a fitness expert. I guide people in sheding fat. Here I would like to give some information regarding weight loss for ladies. Losing fat for females is a bit difficult compared to men. The nature has designed ladies in such a manner that they can bear kids and is the cause for the fat storage in the abdomen area.The Venus Factor system is a great system that is specifically created for ladies. It is a organic type of product which helps women to shed weight by natural methods, no medication involved. I had seen lot of people telling regarding this lately and the general view is that this is really beneficial. Therefore use The Venus Factor out if you desire to lose weight. It is just the only product in the health market that I think I could recommend .
