Princeton families make $1.5M donation to Rutgers to study adult autism

2 Feb

NJ.com is reporting Princeton families make $1.5M donation to Rutgers to study adult autism. Two families donated $750,000 each, matched by another gift to the university to endow a chair in the psychology department:

Located at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, the Karmazin and Lillard Chair in Adult Autism will pay for research and training future professionals to work in the growing field.

I find it very encouraging that the donors are parents of adolescent autistics.

    So do I. I think these families want to now what’s in store for their autistic adolescents, and what could be in store for them if the right resources can be made available. Because, utimately, it comes down to resources and the attitudes of those who control these resources.
