Inspired to help others, Marian University hosts the Dr. Darold A. Treffert lecture series each year to share information about autism in children and adults, and has included topics such as behavioral and communication concerns, treatment and diagnostic techniques, and featured keynote speakers who live with autism.

A Wisconsin psychiatrist, Dr. Darold A. Treffert has been studying autism and Savant syndrome for more than 40 years. His work has been published in several journals, and most recently published his book “Islands of Genius: The Bountiful Mind of the Autistic, Acquired and Sudden Savant” in 2010. Dr. Treffert previously served on the Marian University Board of Trustees and is actively involved in the Fond du Lac community.
