AUDIO: Ed Asner on Autism Advocacy, Awareness

He’s a familiar name from television, movies, and voice-acting. That familiar name will be appearing at the Akron Civic Theater on October 12.

Part of the Autism Society of Greater Akron’s Autism Summit, Ed Asner and his son, Matt, will be a part of a panel with Bruce Winges. He recently spoke with WAKR’s Tony Mazur about his advocacy for autism awareness, especially in a time when the affliction was not as well known. Asner also discussed the portrayal of autism in the media, and how far it has come in recent years.

The 3rd Annual Autism Summit will continue on October 13th, as well, at the Hilton Akron-Fairlawn. For more information on the festivities, visit AutismAkron.org/conference.
