MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Ball State University educators are planning a daylong symposium aimed at helping college students with autism.

The university says will host the symposium of educators Sept. 26 on the Muncie campus. Event organizer Lyn Jones says she hopes to fill a gap in help for college students with autism.

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that one in every 88 children falls somewhere on the autism spectrum.

Ball State special education professor David McIntosh will keynote the event. He is co-leader of the university's autism and applied behavioral analysis degree program with Susan Wilczynski, who formerly led the National Autism Center.
