October 2, 2012 | Events, UToday



Join The University of Toledo for an open house Thursday, Oct. 4, to celebrate the Center for Excellence in Autism’s first anniversary.

“We’re excited to host this event to celebrate the center’s one-year anniversary,” said Sherry Moyer, executive and research director for the Center for Excellence in Autism. “We continue to provide our unique and much-needed services to adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorders. We are continuously growing and learning, and we invite the public to come see our progress so far as well as our plans for the future.”

The event will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. in the center, located in the Kobacker Center on UT’s Health Science Campus. Guests are encouraged to park in lot 43, enter the building from that direction, and follow the signs to find the event.

The first 10 guests will receive a free copy of a new release from the Autism Asperger Publishing Co. There also will be a book sale to allow those who show up later to purchase the latest titles about autism spectrum disorders.

During the open house, guests are welcome to partake of refreshments while learning about the center’s service plans, 48-hour pledge, lifespan of services, specialties in adolescent girl’s and women’s wellness, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder services, transition to adulthood assistance and new parent classes.

The center also is able to accept some private insurance plans and offer services through both the Ohio Department of Mental Health and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.
