Arkansas State University

This is A-State Connections.  I'm Johnathan Reaves.  HOWL stands for Helping Our Wolves Learn.  The center provides a range of outpatient services to children, adolescents, and adults in the community.  Some of the services include therapy, social skills training, academic interventions, and more.  There is also a transition program starting this summer to help students transition to college.   Through engagement and inclusive practices, the HOWL transition program is designed to provide learning environments for students with intellectual disabilities and autism.  Telling us more is Assistant Professor of Psychology at A-State Dr. Kristen Johnson and Coordinator of the HOWL Transition Program Elizabeth Snow.  Johnson tells how the HOWL Service Center started.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
