Talking with Scouter Adam

Greetings to all and I hope all our Autism and Scouting readers are doing well. I can’t believe that it is almost the end of July. Welcome to all.

What an amazing couple last radio broadcasts! We would love to hear your feedback and if you know of anybody that might make for a good interview, please let us know.

We have also set up a new blog site just for the Radio Broadcasts. To see all past shows and to see who is coming up, you can go to the following:

Today, we wanted to give you a preview of our next installment of Autism and Scouting Radio which will be on Thursday July 20th from 1:00 - 1:30 pm PST . Our special guest interview will be with Mr. Adam Cox who is also known as “ScouterAdam”.

Adam is an amazing scout leader who is dedicated to bringing scouting to youth with all abilities. He is currently the Cubmaster for Pack 221 in Portland, OR. He is also the Training Chair for the Pioneer District and he likes to joke that he is addicted to Roundtable meetings and anything scouting.  

In addition to his training that he gives through the Boy Scouts of America, he also offers both a blog and Podcast called ScouterAdam which can be read and heard here:  

In the blog he talks all things scouting and is an amazing supporter of the scouting program. I strongly urge you to check it out.

Adam attained his Wood Badge Beads in March of 2009 and was part of the Beaver Patrol (the same as Sean Williams our last guest). In 2011, he was also a Woodbadge Troop Guide for the Bobwhite Patrol.

In addition to scouting, he a family man with a son in Cub Scouts and a daughter in Girl Scouts. Again being the joker that he is, he wanted people to also know that he is also a Platinum member of the Holiday Inn and MVP for Alaska Airlines. (Maybe he can get me a First Class upgrade next time I travel!)

We will focus on his role as a Cubmaster and how to work with parents that might not understand parents and scouts on the Autism Spectrum. We will also talk about training on a district level and what can be done as well as at the unit level. I am sure that Adam will have some stories that will be entertaining as well.  We have a lot to cover and this is one you will not want to miss.

Show day will be Thursday, July 26th, 2012 from 1:00 - 1:30 p.m. PST / 4:00 - 4:30 p.m. EST.
There are a couple of ways to tune in:

1) You can call in live at (347) 855-8132.
2) You can go to the following link:

If you miss the initial broadcast, it will still be available on demand at the above link. We are also developing an expanded Autism and Scouting page where we will list all our broadcasts future and past.

Here are direct links to both stations of Autism Empowerment:

We invite you to come follow our shows and share the word about our new stations with your family, friends and social networks. The more we can spread the word, the better of a collaborative community we can develop!

So far, the response has been wonderful for both stations. We are glad so many people like us and are interested in tuning in to see what we have in store for the future. If you missed our first broadcast or any of our other shows you can always listen to us on demand in our archive section. Here is a link directly to our Welcome to Autism Scouting Radio broadcast.

We also wanted to provide a link to our Welcome to Autism Empowerment Radio broadcast because this is a really great show that explains who Autism Empowerment is (we’re a 501(c) non-profit public charity), what our mission is and what our four foundational pillars of Accept, Enrich, Inspire and Empower mean in terms of the programs and services we offer and develop. It’s a 30 minute show that givea a great overall at look at where we’ve been in the past year, what we’re doing and where we’re going.

If you know of anybody that you would like to see interviewed or you have a topic idea for a future broadcast, please let us know by emailing

Accept, Enrich, Inspire, Empower!
