Children participating in the Institute for Autism Research’s summerMAX Program enjoy Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities from the AT&T and WNY STEM Hub Prism Program. SummerMAX is a comprehensive psychosocial treatment program, developed by co-directors Marcus Thomeer, PhD and Christopher Lopata, PsyD, for 7-12 year old children with high functioning autism spectrum disorder (HFASD). The collaboration between AT&T, WNY STEM Hub and the Institute for Autism Research incorporated STEM activities into the summerMAX program.
