Partnering with top podcasts, self-advocates, experts and other autism allies, the Podcastathon will attempt to stream live for 44 hours nonstop. The entire Autism Network Podcastathon will be free around the globe, to anyone with an internet connection. On Tuesday April 4th at 6pm ET, The Autism Network Podcastathon will launch and be available for viewing on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other live streaming sites. Each hour will feature different content from top-rated autism Podcasts, including Autism Live, Ask Dr. Doreen, Stories from the Spectrum, The Autism Dadvocate, The Autism Helper, Turn Autism Around with Dr. Mary Barbera, The SJ Childs Show, Just Two Dads, A 25 Year Look Across the Spectrum, Autism: What Now? and many more. Several top Autism Organizations and Charities will also participate including The Autism Partnership Foundation, The Ed Asner Family Center, and The Autism Community in Action (TACA). an hour-by-hour calendar for the event can be viewed here:
The event will run for 44 hours because the CDC currently estimates that of eight-year-olds in the US, 1 in 44 has received an ASD diagnosis. For parents this is often an overwhelming new world that seems difficult to navigate without help and support. Many find themselves scouring the internet hoping to find good information about how to create the best outcomes for their children. It can be exhausting, overwhelming and ineffective. For teens and adults on the spectrum there is even less support. The goal of the Podcastathon is to provide information and inspiration to those on the spectrum, young and old, as well as the families, friends and professionals who love them.
Shannon Penrod is the host and producer of Autism Live, and the coordinator for the event.“We wanted to share information with people around the globe, to shed a positive light for those who may not have experience with autism and those who are currently seeking support and resources. It was very important to us to get good information available to all and have it be free to viewers. However, we are allowing for sponsorships that help defray the cost of production.” companies and entities interested in sponsorship opportunities can visit:
The Autism Network Podcastathon will feature many well-known members of the autism community including renowned speaker and author, Dr. Temple Grandin, Dr. Stephen Shore, Dr. Peter Gerhardt, Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds and As We See It), Holly Robinson Peete (21 Jump Street, The Hallmark Channel) and Coby Bird (Locke & Key, The Good Doctor) with more guests to be revealed.
