Author of The Autism Sourcebook to Speak at NYU, March 8


Wednesday, Feb 22, 2006, Karen Siff Exkorn, author of The Autism Sourcebook: Everything You Need to Know About Diagnosis, Treatment, Coping and Healing-From a Mother Whose Child Recovered (ReganBooks/HaperCollins, 2005), will discuss her experiences dealing with child autism at New York University on Wed., March 8, at 6:30 p.m. (Kimball Hall Lounge, 246 Greene Street, First Floor [corner of Waverly Place and Greene Street]).

Siff Exkorn, an alumna of NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, struggled to pull together comprehensive information about autism after her son was diagnosed with the disorder. She was able to educate herself quickly, and her extensive at-home treatment of her son led to his full recovery. In The Autism Sourcebook, Siff Exkorn offers parents the wisdom she wishes she’d had at the beginning.

Editor’s Note:
The Gallatin School of Individualized Study is a small innovative college within New York University. Gallatin gives students the opportunity to design a program of study tailored to their own needs and interests. The key to Gallatin’s educational approach is its close supervision of the student’s course of study by its faculty advisers. Students pursue individual interests by taking courses in the various schools of NYU, engaging in self-directed education through independent studies and participating in experiential learning through internships at New York City’s countless institutions, businesses, and arts organizations. Undergraduates experience a thorough grounding in the history of ideas and great books, and graduate students pursue advanced study in interdisciplinary modes of thought.
