Dec. 26, 2006 – “The Profiles Series”announces Special Program on Autism in America
In response to President Bush’s recent signing of the Combating Autism Act of 2006, The Profiles Series announces the production of a special edition program in efforts to bring more and much needed media attention to this emerging American health crisis.
Executive Producer Wali Waiters says “the incidence of autism is increasing at an alarming rate and we want to educate parents on the various therapies and treatments that are available”
With recent statistics from the U.S. Department of Education and other governmental agencies showing that autism is growing at a startling rate of 10-17 percent per year, and estimates that the prevalence of autism could reach 4 million Americans in the next decade, this special program will feature those personally affected by this heart-breaking disorder and the dedicated researchers, physicians, organizations, and individuals that are at the forefront of efforts to combat, and hopefully cure Autism.
Our mission is to create quality programming which will inform, educate and enlighten our viewers both nationally and internationally. We cover a variety of topics ranging from health and medical to business, and environmental. “The Profiles Series” can be seen on cable networks nationwide and internationally on Voice of America Television. www.profilesseries.com
