IN THIS WEEK’S EPISODE:
(28 mins) In this episode, hosts Katherine Cody, Psy.D. and Becca Lory, CAS, BCCS welcome guest Sharon Valencia of Felicity House. Sharon joined Felicity House in 2014 after serving as the Program Associate at the Simons Foundation, an affiliated organization with a mission to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics, autism and basic sciences. One of Sharon’s main projects at the Simons Foundation was to establish a pilot group for adult women with autism, which later helped shape many of the current programs at Felicity House. Sharon has a BA in Communications and Art History from Rutgers University and an MA in Design from Parsons/The New School for Design. The three discuss the Felicity House mission, the importance of creating safe environments for women on the spectrum to develop social skills in, and the challenges present for people with autism to foster strong friendships.
