Autism Daily Newscast 2014-10-13

We report on current events of interest and importance to those on the autism spectrum

  1. Brent
    Autism Daily Newscast is an official Google News site. We report on current events of interest and importance to those on the autism spectrum and those who love them. Our main focus is on current issues around health concerns, life style, latest research and technology as it relates to autism spectrum disorder. Our goal is to provide useful and valuable information that is written in an easy to understand format.

    Other topics include entertainment, education, careers and interesting people profiles. In addition, we review the latest gadgets and products that might be useful to those on the autism spectrum. We attempt to identify the pros and cons from this perspective and then publish the results.

    We launched late October, 2012 with the intention of putting up one good news article each week and by June we were publishing daily. Slowly we grew our writers until we had a good solid team. On the first day of Spring, 2013 we launched our Facebook Page and on July 5th our Twitter page went live. For the second half of 2013, our objective was to publish important news articles three times or more a day. Beginning in 2014, we publish, on average, five times a day.



    Our Mission
    To be the Reuters in the Autism Spectrum arena.

    Yep a big goal but we see ourselves more as a news publishing company than an entertainment news site like Huffington Post which calls itself “a user community and actively encourages commenting on news stories and blog posts”. We love Huffington Post; they are a great source of stories and resources for us. In fact, a couple of our journalists contribute to HuffingtonPost.com

    Reuters values are ones worth aspiring to as it specifically relates to ASD:

    • Telling the world’s stories like no one else
    • Shining a light on the unreported world
    • The Trust Principles:
      1. Integrity
      2. Independence
      3. Freedom from bias
