Ursinus graduate, Theresa Mowad, and Dr. Stevenson publish research.

Ursinus alumna, Theresa Mowad (’19) and Dr. Jennifer Stevenson are pleased to announce the publication of their research in Autism in Adulthood.

Their research, entitled Explicit Associations with Autism and Disability examines autistic people’s call for greater acceptance even though the general public has greater awareness of the autism spectrum. This study investigates explicit or conscious attitudes toward the autism spectrum and disability in college students and the general population. They hypothesized that both samples would associate “a person on the autism spectrum” with more negative attributes than other types of people except for “a person with a disability.”
