OU Landscape Architecture Alumnus Presents at ASLA Conference

This year, the annual American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) national conference was held virtually, with the theme reVISION ASLA. University of Oklahoma Landscape Architecture alumnus Amanda Thomas was selected to present her topic entitled “Considering Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Playground Design” during a “Game Changer” session.

In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control estimated the prevalence of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as one in 59. Landscape architects can be the game changers to help children with ASD cope with symptoms.
