Burkhart Center for Autism hosts Think Tank conference

Posted: Updated:

Texas Tech Burkhart Center for Autism hosted the higher education Think Tank Conference Wednesday.

It discusses with educators the strategies, challenges and research related to college students with autism. 

Program Director Deann Lechtenberger says the center is setting an example.

"It comes to show that what we are doing is working and we're helping recruit, retain and graduate students that are very, very bright, but have autism but might not have completed college on their own because they needed other support besides academics," she said.

Ten universities and colleges took part in the conference, including several faculty members from Tech.
