The Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders held its 2018 STRIVE Program Graduation Ceremony on May 15. The Self-Determined Transition Readiness through Individual Vocational Experiences program is a post-secondary education program offering employment skills development at the University of Missouri for people with autism.
The four graduates — Brett Haller, Calvin Duran, Kyle Boffa and Shelby Smith — worked shifts at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute and Thompson Laboratory for Regenerative Orthopaedics among their other work experiences in the program. We congratulate them on a job well done.
