MSU hosts autism youth camp

June 26, 2013

When Bernice Johnson was young, she had an aunt and uncle who did not know how to read.

The aunt and uncle both had special needs, Johnson said, and they never went to school, but they did have functional skills like cleaning the house. At about 14 years old, she said, she and her twin sister decided to teach the aunt and uncle to read. She said that was the beginning of her career in special education, which she now studies at Mississippi State University.
