We hope that you are all having a wonderful scouting season wherever you are.
In today’s blog we are going to give you a look at what is coming up on Autism and Scouting Radio shows for this coming week. Also, we wanted to give a preview of some of the upcoming blogs that are being planned.
First the Upcoming Radio Shows:
This is really going to be wonderful week of shows full of lots of content.
On Tuesday, September 18th at 10:00am, I will be joined with Karen Krejcha and we will be giving tips on how to work with your scouts when they are trying to fundraise. Most units depend on fundraising either by selling cookies, popcorn, holiday wreaths, coupon books, candy bars or a variety of items. There are many issues that arise, both sensory and non-sensory when scouts who are on the Autism Spectrum are asked to take part in support of their unit by fundraising.
On Wednesday, the 19th at 12 Noon, I will be joined by Karen Mansfield of Troop 5280 in Denver, Colorado. Karen is the founder and was the Troopmaster for the first five years of a very unique Troop that is designated as Special Needs. Troop 5280 helps prepare scouts to make the transition from Cub Scouts to a traditional Boy Scout Troop. It also welcomes new scouts coming into scouting and prepares them for what lays ahead. This is a very unique and inspirational Troop. They recently had one of their first scouts in the program earn the rank of Eagle.
On Friday, the 21st at 10:00, Autism and Scouting Radio has a first. It is our first radio panel discussion. We will be joined on air by three members of Boy Scout Troop 2. This Troop has been around a long time and serves a great number of scouts in the show me state of Missouri. Boy Scout Troop 2 has a long history of helping scouts with different disabilities and look forward to hearing about what they did to develop a successful and supportive program.
If you would like to call in during the live show and ask a question you can do so by calling (347) 855-8132.
If you miss the initial broadcast, it will still be available on demand at the below link. We have expanded the Autism and Scouting page where we list all our broadcasts future and past.
Here are direct links to both stations of Autism Empowerment:
Or you can find both stations on iTunes as well. Search for “Autism and Scouting” or “Autism Empowerment” in order to find us. Subscribe for Free and have access to downloading all of our broadcasts for free as well.
One of the neat things about Autism and Scouting Radio is we bring you unique shows and attempt to showcase units around the nation. We hope to showcase units worldwide as well.
Time permitting, we are looking forward to getting back on track as far as blogging goes. In addition to this blog, we will be doing a blog about fundraising and this will be posted after the radio show. We will also be posting our August Review. We typically try to do a monthly review blog after the end of each month, however we are running a bit behind. We look forward to providing lots of additional content in the future.
If you are interested in guest blogging for Autism and Scouting and/or have a story you’d like to share with our readers in print or on air, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
So we are still very active for the month of September and the rest of the year looks bright.
