WSU student with autism featured on NPR

A self described “resident alien” of WSU was recently contacted by National Public Radio, offering her the opportunity to broadcast her thoughts on socializing and neurological disorders nationwide.

Lisa Daxer, a 27 year old biomedical engineering major at WSU is autistic.

She was featured on NPR’s special series “The Human Edge” to offer her unique perspective on social interactions, a perspective she has in common with others who have this disability.

“I realized that I had to do it,” said Daxer. “I really want to get the message out that autistic people are just people. We should be accepted, rather than feared or pitied.”
