MFT student Jim Tillett was featured in the Virginia Tech News article, “Doctoral Student Takes a New Approach to Research with Autistic Communities.” The article describes how, through his research, clinical work, and teaching, Jim uses his own experiences and therapeutic conversations with autistic people and their loved ones to challenge ablelist narratives.

Jim also recently moderated the InclusiveVT Welcome keynote by disability rights activist Judith Heumann. The event was hosted by Virginia Tech’s Office for Inclusion and Diversity.
