The OASIS Program
Join us for special event with Temple Grandin!
Join Pace University’s Ongoing Academic and Social Instructional Support (OASIS) Program and Strokes of Genius for an inspiring lecture on how to train the talent in artistic individuals with autism. Guest lecturer Temple Grandin, PhD, one of the most accomplished and well-known adults with autism in the world, will deliver the keynote address. Rosa C. Martinez, PhD, BCBA-D, president and founder of Strokes of Genius, will also discuss how to help autistic artists realize their talents.
Artwork (on public display from April 14-20) individuals with autism will be on display* and available for purchase. A special art auction and VIP reception with Grandin and the artists will help fund the OASIS and Strokes of Genius programs. All proceeds from the auction will go to Strokes of Genius and OASIS Program for students on the autistic spectrum.
