Nancy Grace Speaks with ACT Today!'s Executive Director

Join me today, September 13th as I join CNN's Nancy Grace at 6:30pm(EST) / 3:30pm (PST). I will discuss the missing 8-year old Twin Peaks, CA boy who has been missing since yesterday.

Joshua Robb wandered away from school yesterday and has not been located.

Here's some of the points I will be sure to share on the show...

Wandering and elopement are symptoms of autism that people are not aware of. The recent drowning in Virginia and the current search for 8-year old Joshua Robb of Twin Peaks are cries for help for children with autism.

Many of our schools are not set up to deal with this problem (wandering). Our special children require special attention. Everyone needs to be aware of this critical aspect of autism to keep children safe.

ACT Today! has a specific fund for safety equipment and we provide grants for behavior therapy which actually teaches children from wandering.
