Can Children With Autism Recover?

Monday, April 11th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Based on her research, Deborah Fein, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Pediatrics at the University of Connecticut, believes that at least 10 percent, and possibly as many as 20 percent of children who receive a diagnosis of autism or autism spectrum disorder can “recover” from it if they are provided the right kind of intensive behavioral therapy. This free lecture is co-sponsored by the American Association of University Women and the UConn College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. All are welcome. The program will be preceded by a brief AAUW annual meeting.

Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: Yogi Bear

Friday, April 8th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Yogi Bear movie posterEveryone’s favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear brings his meal-mooching ways to movies in this live-action/CG-animated adventure starring Dan Aykroyd as the voice of Jellystone Park’s famed troublemaker Yogi Bear and Justin Timberlake as the voice of Yogi’s faithful pal Boo Boo. Jellystone has been losing business, so conniving Mayor Brown has decided to shut it down and sell the land. Faced with the loss of his home, Yogi must prove he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with Ranger Smith to find a way to save the park from closing forever. Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, TJ Miller and Andrew Daly co-star in this wonderful new incarnation of Hanna-Barbera’s classic cartoon. Rated PG.
