Libraries, Schools Join In Autism Awareness Month
Schoollibraryjournal.com, April 5 -- Libraries and schools are kicking off National Autism Awareness Month in April with a variety of activities meant to help kids understand why those affected by this complex developmental disability can act differently—and how to accept, and even embrace, these differences. "With the incidence of autism now affecting 1 in every 110 [people], it's safe to say that every school has a student who is on the spectrum," says Dr. Cathy Pratt, chairman of the board for the National Autism Society of America, and director of Indiana University's Indiana Resource Center for Autism. "And if kids don't have information about what autism is, they sometimes misinterpret the behavior." Full story.

A Basketball Palace
Rivals.yahoo.com, April 4 -- The Hoosier sports tradition is one of the proudest in the collegiate ranks, and what happens on the field has created memories, joy and sadness for the Indiana faithful over more than a century of action. What happens on the field of play has been great, but the surroundings in which those games are played are as much a part of the experience. Every other week through the 2009-10 school year, we will present a history of the athletic facilities at IU. In the 10th of our 12-part series, we take a look at the history of AssemblyHall. This is actually the second installment of Part 10. Full story.
