Autism Delaware Board Members Brendan O’Neill, Rodger Pearce and Artie Kempner Download

00:29 Download May 18th

April was Autism Month, now recognized as the 44 days of Acceptance and Inclusion – and we are wrapping up a five part series on Autism Delaware with a conversation with members of its board – President Brendan O’Neill, Vice-President Rodger Pearce and Director, and founder, Artie Kempner. They discussed the history of Autism Delaware; from a support group organized in the dining room of Artie and Marcy Kempner, after their son’s diagnosis 22 years ago, through today’s corporation offering family services, employment support, and social and recreational services. They each discussed the lack of support and information they faced when they joined the ranks of families with Autism, the fear and worry for their children’s future. Praising the Delaware school system, they spoke of the need for programming for young adults after graduation and opportunities as they age. We talked about the services they offer and their advocacy work and the McNesby Act, passed but not funded, to provide better wages and security for occupational and residential care workers. While COVID curtailed many services they anticipate returning to full programming soon and ask the public to join them in funding, volunteering, and participating in activities and events.
