Through her experiences with the Hussman Center, Rhonda will address ways in which adults with autism can be educated so that they can develop the tools necessary to lead meaningful lives in their communities. The Hussman Center is one of the largest university-based centers in the world that is focused exclusively on the needs of adults with autism. The center recently opened the doors to a new location in Towson, Maryland, which provides state-of-the-art facilities for student education and where best practices for supporting the adult autism population are developed.
In addition to being the Director of the Center for Adults with Autism, Rhonda is professor in Collaborative Programs of the College of Health Professions where she teaches courses on Autism, a busy public speaker and a parent of a daughter with autism.
Rhonda is currently working on a book entitled, Adults with Autism and Related Disabilities: Ethics and Important Considerations for Family Members and Clinicians.
