What’s Up for the Weekend?

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you had a great week and are ready for the weekend ahead.

Here are some ideas …

Interested in autism research? International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) brings together the world’s top scientists who will share their latest research into autism’s causes, treatments and diagnoses. It is currently taking place in Philadelphia and we will be updating media coverage and blog posts by scientists here.

Want to Walk Now for Autism Speaks? On Saturday, we have Walks in Cincinnati, Mt. Laurel (N.J.) and Wheeling (W.Va.). Sunday, we have three more in Atlanta, Ligonier (Penn.) and Paramus (N.J.). If you live near one of these towns, visit walknowforautismspeaks.org for more information and join us on Walk Day! We promise a fabulous time for you and your family.

Set your DVRs! On Saturday night at 8 p.m. EDT, NBC is re-airing this week’s episode of “Parenthood”, Team Braverman, which featured members of the family participating in a Walk Now for Autism Speaks event. Check your local listings for show information. Tune in on Sunday, May 23 at 9 p.m. EDT to NBC’s season finale of “The Celebrity Apprentice.” In the LIVE finale “Final Two Brew” Autism Speaks board member, parent and actress Holly Robinson Peete faces off against Poison’s Bret Michaels. Visit http://www.nbc.com/the-apprentice/ for more information.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend!

    As a mother of 16-year old son with ASD and someone that was chair of the inaugural walk for autism in Buffalo in 2002 and 2003 (WALK FAR for NAAR.. now Autism Speaks), I want to share updates on our plans. We are busy preparing for our journey on the road across the U.S. called, Taking it to the Street. We plan to be on the road by early summer. While it has taken us longer than expected for the cross country tour to begin (sold our home in July 2008 and relocated to Tampa Bay Florida), we are taking the next step despite financial challenges. We are positive that things will come together! We still need a Class A Motorhome – used – donation anyone?

    We can’t do this alone! We ask for the autism community and Autism Speaks support!
