Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice host Fathering Autism
NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and the School of Criminal Justice (FCE&SCJ) hosted The Maass Family, known as Fathering Autism for a campus tour and meet and greet earlier this month.
The Maass family has dedicated their lives to increasing awareness and acceptance of autism spectrum disorders in order for their daughter, Abbie, and people like her on the autism spectrum, to live in the most positive environment possible. Parents, Asa and Priscilla, under the surname Fathering Autism, have been creating videos and utilizing various social media channels to share their experiences with their autistic child and provide the opportunity for families with autistic children to do the same.
The Fischler College of Education and the School of Criminal Justice entered into a partnership with the Maass family to present various Facebook Live Chats as influencers regarding discussion on autism, and have been given the opportunity to promote the M.S. in Developmental Disabilities program with Associate Professor, Maribel Del Rio Roberts as the co-host.
