I am deeply grateful and excited to introduce you to Dr. Michael Alessandri, whose list of qualifications and accomplishments are amazing and impossible to quantify. He is the Executive Director of UM-NSU CARD (the University of Miami-Nova Southeastern University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities), and just celebrated his 25th anniversary there this year. I am proud to call him a mentor and a friend. Without further ado, here he is!
Dr. Jack Scott is the founder and executive director of the Florida Atlantic University Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, who is also my friend. He is an associate professor in the Department of Special Education and teaches courses on autism, inclusion, and behavior analysis.
He has helped many people and families. It is my honor to introduce you to him!

I hope parodying Looney Tunes is alright. Thank you, Bugs Bunny!
The following poem discusses the dangers of Darwinism if it is taken too far: How social Darwinism promotes eugenics. This poem is not meant to be taken literally. It was also inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem, “Cultural Exchange”.
