Montgomery Advertiser - Faulkner University is set to open a first-of-its-kind autism center in the River Region.
The center would combine the resources from the College of Education with new Master's and doctoral programs in speech-language pathology and physical therapy beginning next fall and the coming year, respectively.
Faulkner has partnered with Texas Tech University's Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research to help with "best practices" and moving forward in developing a similar center at Faulkner.
The center is set to open in 2019. On Sept. 27, Faulkner held its first autism conference on campus, providing advice on raising and nurturing those with autism from birth, high school, college and beyond.
