Melmark director discusses Autism Spectrum Disorder

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, at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 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 a master's of art in psychology from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and a doctorate in special education and applied behavior analysis from Ohio State University.
