April is Autism Awareness month, and a Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Program (KRS) in the College of Education is gaining media attention. Led by KRS Associate Professor Kelle Murphy, university students in KRS 443 Diversity and Disability teach swimming skills and safety to children with autism as part of a 10-week laboratory section. The program, which has expanded from 12 to nearly 50 participants since 2017, is now a required section of the adapted physical education class. Watch the inspirational video produced by UH News, which has been aired on Hawaii News Now.
