Tyler Miller of New Horizons (Aired on September 2nd, and September 3rd, 2017)

 New Horizons Resources of Dutchess and Ulster (Aired on September 2
and 3, 2017)
Tyler Miller, a Direct Support Professional with New Horizons Resources, Inc., is interviewed about the New Horizons program for group homes in Dutchess and Ulster counties. New Horizons maintains over thirty homes for older (over age 20) persons with developmental or intellectual disabilities. One or more Direct Service Professionals are present at all times to facilitate the person-centered family-like situations. Residents largely take care of themselves with the assistance of helpers like Tyler Miller. The Direct Support Professionals also aid residents in visiting or working at outside facilities or in participating in such events as the Special Olympics. Mr. Miller became involved in part because his whole family does service of one kind or another, including his mother’s work at Cardinal Hayes Home for Children and brother’s job at the Anderson Center for Autism. Group homes are placed in neighborhoods throughout the community, enabling the residents to participate in community life instead of being shut away in institutions as was formerly common.

Eliza Bozenski from The Anderson Foundation (Aired on June 10th 2017 and June 11th 2017)

Foundation Helps Those on Autism Spectrum (Aired on June 10 and 11,
2017)

Eliza Bozenski, Director of the Anderson Foundation for Autism, comes to the RadioRotary microphone to discuss the autism spectrum and how the Anderson Foundation’s several ways of outreach are making a difference for families that must cope with autism. Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disability that ranges from what is commonly called Asperger Syndrome, which may be accompanied by high intelligence, to instances of autism that feature very low intelligence and serious disability. Early intervention makes a considerable difference in development; parents recognizing that a child may have a problem should not hesitate about taking the child to a physician for diagnosis. The Anderson Foundation provides a range of autism services, including residential treatment and consultation with families. One program helps businesses develop an autism supportive environment that can modify practices so that persons on the autism spectrum can feel more comfortable and handle business interactions more easily. There is a lot more to learn from this insightful interview.
