Dr. Michael Hannon, Assistant Professor in the Counseling Department, was recently featured as a guest speaker, along with Dr. Robert Naseef, for the Autism Speaks podcast called Autism POVs (Points of View). Dr. Hannon is very passionate about sharing his research and community-based work on fathers of individuals with autism in a range of spaces. During the Autism POVs podcast, Dr. Hannon and Dr. Naseef discussed their experiences as dads and the monthly support group they co-facilitate for fathers of individuals in Philadelphia. Additionally, they challenged misconceptions about dads of autistic children by supporting other dads in the autism community.
