Autism Live® Celebrates Milestone of Over 1 Million Views on YouTube

The interactive web show’s original episodes, which are dedicated to helping people learn, share, and ask questions about autism, have also surpassed 4 million minutes watched.

WOODLAND HILLS (Mar. 11, 2016) – Autism Live®, the premier interactive web show that provides a resource for all things autism, announced today that it has surpassed 1 million views and over 4 million minutes watched on its YouTube channel. With nearly 400 episodes and hundreds of other video segments featuring experts and special guests, Autism Live® has become a trusted source for parents, teachers, and practitioners to learn, share, and ask questions about autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The million-mark milestone is being hailed as an important one by the entire Autism Live® team and Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), where Autism Live® is produced and broadcast.

“Autism Live’s mission is to provide a free resource to the entire autism community,” said Shannon Penrod, host of Autism Live®. “We are thrilled to have parents, teachers, technicians, and individuals with autism watching our videos and interacting with the experts and guests we feature weekly on the show.”

In addition to gaining insight and answers to pressing questions from autism experts, Autism Live’s viewers are encouraged to become a part of each episode’s experience by submitting topics for discussion and sharing the progress of their own children, students, and patients with ASD. The program is also collaborating with other like-minded organizations focused on autism treatment and education. “We provide several nonprofit organizations with the opportunity to create their own content and share it on Autism Live®, as well, including Autism Care and Treatment (ACT) Today!, Autism Speaks, Autism Society of America, and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA,)” said Penrod.

Along with Shannon Penrod, Autism Live® features regular segments with Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, founder and executive director of CARD, and Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson, award-winning television producer and author-turned executive director of ACT Today!, a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide grants for individuals whose families cannot afford treatment or other expenses arising from a family member’s ASD diagnosis.
