University of Evansville professor Elizabeth Hennon is looking to help raise awareness and support for children with Autism and Down Syndrome. Through her work at U of E she has developed a program working with Psychology students to further student developing children with Autism and Down Syndrome.
Elizabeth has designed activities to test the abilities of a child with Autism. By observing how a child reacts to fun activities and playing games she hopes to show that these children are capable of much more than previously thought.
“When a child succeeds on a task that a parent would have thought impossible, it can help the parent to see other skills that their child might possess as well.”
Please read the press release from the University of Evansville on what Elizabeth Hennon is doing for the children in the community. Elizabeth is looking for participants, which can contact her through the U of E website.
