May 30, 2013
By Autism Society
The Autism Society is excited to announce Richard Wolf of USA Today and CSPAN as this year’s 44th Annual National Conference media panel moderator. In the aftermath of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, many wondered and even more grew concerned as a result of the media linking autism with violence. As a point of reference, please review the Autism Society’s statement: http://www.autism-society.org/news/update-autism-society-no.html
On the second day of the conference, we will host a panel discussion with Michelle Diemont, Co-Founder of Disability Scoop, Wendy Weintraub a former Boston Globe reporter and now freelance reporter, and Mark Roth, a science reporter with the Pittsburgh Gazette.
Facilitated by Richard Wolf, they will discuss the role of the media in reporting on autism, how the media portrays autism issues and how autism advocates can work with and educate the media on issues impacting individuals and families affected by autism. Richard Wolf has been a USA TODAY reporter and editor for more than 25 years, specializing in government and domestic policy. He has covered the Supreme Court since 2012. Prior to that, Mr. Wolf covered the White House, Congress, the federal budget and economics, health care policy, and politics.
