12/5/2011 —

Penn State Brandywine will host a special session for students called “Working with Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder” with Amanda Guld, director of professional development and training at Melmark, on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 12:30 p.m. in the Tomezsko Classroom Building, room 103.

Melmark is a local organization serving adults and children with intellectual disabilities, acquired brain injuries, autism spectrum disorders and other neurological and genetic disorders.

The event “promises to be a great way to let students know about a variety of career options in behavioral analysis,” said Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies Jennifer Zosh, who organized the talk.

Guld holds an M.A. in psychology from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and a Ph.D. in special education and applied behavior analysis from Ohio State University.
