Amy Thrasher '97 Tells How Radio Program Helps Asperger's Students (+ video)

Amy Thrasher, '97, clinical assistant professor at SLHS, was interviewed by the Boulder Daily Camera regarding The Perspectives Program, a cooperative effort between the Temple Grandin School and SLHS. The program uses radio interviewing as a way to teach better communication skills. During the video (below) interview with Amy she explains that "learning to interview is a way to help students to understand another person's perspective". The students get to practice these skills in an interesting, professional studio setting, a motivating environment to say the least. Amy supervises several graduate students who also were involved in the three-week program.
