APPOINTED DIRECTOR OF THE COMMUNITY AUTISM NETWORK AT FGCU
The mission of The Community Autism Network at FGCU is to integrate curated, evidence-based information from research into educational and clinical content, which informs the delivery of health and human services to individuals in our community with autism and/or other neurodiverse conditions, including intellectual disability, across the lifespan.
