Professor Kristen Gillespie-Lynch, assistant professor of psychology and director of Project REACH at CSI, was featured in an article about Project REACH on several news Web sites, including NBC News.
The article written by Meredith Kolodner was also published in The Hechinger Report, an online news source that covers inequality in higher education, and The Huffington Post.
Project REACH is a program aimed to help students on the autism spectrum succeed in college and beyond. One of the goals of the program is to assist students with a variety of aspects such as social skills.
“You can talk at people all you want about social skills,” said Kristen Gillespie-Lynch, “but there has to be an element of doing it for people to learn it. … That’s why we have the group classes.”
