Move over Honey Boo Boo - we bring you, Honey Poo Poo and The Autism Team.
If you're like me, you're tired of the media portrayal of autism as a Swiss army knife of gifts wrapped in designer clothing none of us can afford and gently bathed in a blue light. It's disrespectful to our children who are severely impaired, and it has meant far less real attention to the plight of families crushed by the impact of autism. Children with every type/severity of autism deserve to be acknowledged and families need to know that help and treatment are real. It's great to show all the things kids with autism can do - but we need a full inclusive picture of how we can help impaired kids move forward.
We can bring Autism Reality TV to the nation. Autism Media Channel has created a reality television show that needs a home on every TV in the nation. Heck, around the globe. Participant Productions, known for it's willingness to tackle tough subjects, is launching a cable channel - we invite you to help ask them to include Autism Team TV in their programming.
2) Fill in your details in the right hand panel.
3) Write a brief message, specifically to Belisa Balaban and Evan Shapiro saying why Participant's new cable channel - due to launch in Summer 2013 - should run The Autism Team series. Please tell Participant what it is like living with autism or how autism has affected you. Please emphasize how The Autism Team can help. Participant wants to screen issues that are important to society, that, "move the needle." Autism is that issue!
