MLK

[I] make no pretense of being the last word on the subject of autistic children. …more appropriate to call it one of the first words.

On January 18, Rimland celebrated the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday with a visit from an outstanding group of volunteers from Northwestern University. The group of 11 students and faculty members sorted, cleaned, and organized supplies used in our Developmental Training Program activities.

The visit was part of Northwestern’s campus-wide Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service, which encouraged members of the Northwestern community to engage in a variety of service projects throughout the Evanston and Chicago areas. Following their time at Rimland, the volunteers joined with other Day of Service participants on the Northwestern campus to have lunch and reflect on their experience.
