Area woman travels to India to educate about autism
Jennifer Fisher, of Stratford, will be traveling to Chandigarh, India with a team of clinicians hand picked by the Global Autism Project in December of 2015 as part of the SkillCorps program.
Fisher was one of seven clinicians chosen for this opportunity for their diverse and comprehensive knowledge of applied behavior analysis and ability to adapt to challenging and novel situations.
