Fraser thanks the community of concerned individuals who have flagged and expressed concern regarding an outdated radio ad, created more than five years ago, that was inadvertently broadcast on one radio station in the Twin Cities, MyTalk107. Fraser is aware of the situation and the concern it has caused among listeners, Fraser employees, individuals and families who understand autism. The language in this dated ad is not part of Fraser’s current messaging and does not align with our values and beliefs.
It was aired without our notice or consent. We contacted the station, which immediately stopped airing the ad. MyTalk107 has apologized for the error and is working collaboratively with Fraser to respond to the situation by addressing listener concerns and ensuring current Fraser language is used now and moving forward. MyTalk107 is a valuable partner to Fraser, and we realize that the running of this ad was an oversight.
Fraser honors and respects autism and all neurological diversity among people. It is our mission to provide tools and support that allow each individual to live life to the fullest. Please accept our sincerest apologies for this unfortunate incident.
