The University of Toledo Libraries in partnership with Student Disability Services and the UT Disability Studies Program is shining the spotlight on adult autism through a month long program of free, public events.

UT teamed up with Bittersweet Farms and the Autism Society of Northwest Ohio to focus on challenges adults diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder face as they transition out of high school and into the community, including housing, employment, health care, transportation, financial management, and social and leisure supports.

Kristy Rothe, Chair of the Family Advisory Council at Promedica Children’s Hospital, spoke on, “Creating a Compassionate Community.”
