Radio interview: Artistry and autism

One of our bloggers, Katy Beh Neas, did a great radio interview around autism [Windows Media Player file] last week — it aired on six Washington, D.C. and Baltimore Clear Channel radio stations on Sunday, Sept. 7.

Katy is the Vice President of Government Relations here at Easter Seals, and her interview covered the basics of autism. She talked about some of the symptoms of autism and gave suggestions on where parents and caregivers can go to get a diagnosis for their loved ones. “Parents are very good judges of what’s going on with their children,” she said, adding that anyone having trouble getting a timely diagnosis should visit the Easter Seals Web site to find an Easter Seals affiliate nearby. “We can help — one thing we do know is autism is treatable. We know that intervention works, but people have to get it.”

Toward the end of the interview she thanked Quixtar North America/Amway Global Independent Business Owners for its Artistry Beauty Begins with Heart program. Beauty Begins with Heart raises funds for Easter Seals’ autism services through the sale of Artistry cosmetic products. Since 1983, Quixtar North America/Amway Global Independent Business Owners have partnered with Easter Seals to support services to children and adults with autism and other disabilities. During this time, over $29.3 million has been contributed by Quixtar North America/Amway Global Business Owners.

If you missed the interview, don’t despair! Through the magic of modern technology, you can still hear Katy Beh Neas’ Clear Channel interview online or download a podcast of her interview. I think you’ll agree with me — she sounds swell!
