SELINSGROVE, ( Pa. ) – Justice for All?, a radio program broadcast on WQSU-FM and produced by the Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society at Susquehanna University, will present a series of four 30-minute programs discussing autism. The programs will air at 8 p.m. weekly (Oct. 1, 8, 15 and 22) on 88.9, The Pulse.The autism series will examine many of the issues confronting autistic children, their families and caregivers: What are the first signs that a child may be autistic? How early in a child’s life might these signs appear? What should be done if signs of autism are identified? Where can a child be seen and properly evaluated if autism is suspected? How can parents, schools and others help an autistic child reach their full potential? What legal rights do autistic children have relating to their special needs?

These and other important questions will be addressed by Dr. Richard E. Dowell, a neuropsychologist at Evangelical Community Hospital, who evaluates children who may be autistic and helps to develop plans to address their special needs; Phil Drumheiser, an attorney who represents special needs children and their families; and Kathleen Dunkleberger, a registered nurse and the mother of a child with autism.
The goal of Justice for All? is to serve as a source of information for improved public understanding of local, state and national social justice issues. “The Pledge of Allegiance tells us that in our nation there is justice for all. Our constitution guarantees that all citizens will be provided equal protection of the laws by the federal and state governments,” says Allan Sobel, director of the Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society, who hosts the program.

“Justice for All? will question whether there truly is justice for all in our society and whether the laws are used to protect all citizens equally. And to the extent we are not measuring up to these commitments, Justice for All? will explore ways of improving the administration of our justice system,” Sobel says.

    ARE PA TAXPAYERS BEING SHUCKED LIKE A BUNCH OF DUMB HUCKSTERS BY OUR LEGISLATORS TO FUND THE DISMEMBERMENT OF A GREAT PLACE OF PEACE IN MERION, PA?
    Arlin Adams was counsel on the bizarre and unpopular effort to take the art, the heart, out of Pennsylvania’s Monticello, The Barnes Foundation, Merion, PA. Voices from the Smithsonian, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The LA Times and more, have cried out against the effort to Move The Barnes’ Art Collection. The move is an ED RENDELL PET PROJECT and it will dismantle an important National Landmark. Worst of all, it is being done with $107mn in PA Taxpayer Money funded by an UNDEBATED, MIDNIGHT LEGISLATIVE EARMARK THAT YOUR LEGISLATOR PROBABLY WON’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT (H.B.1213 of 2002)!
    PLEASE USE OUR TAX MONEY TO FIGHT AUTISM & TO PROTECT EQUAL JUSTICE INSTEAD! Guard The Barnes Gate Mr. ARLIN ADAMS! KEEP THE BARNES IN MERION! Barnesfriends.org Artjail.org
