He knew he shouldn’t have ignored the Check Engine light but, he had done what he always did with most bothersome things—ignored it, thinking it would take care of itself.  But not this time.  The car wouldn’t start.

Even though some people say they enjoy a challenge, I wonder if they really look forward to facing really difficult ones.  Psychologist Daniel Kahneman, in his book Thinking, Fast and Slow, argues that people don’t like to deal with hard questions and have a tendency to replace them with ones that are easily answered.

A virtual conference on the realities of children with autism was recently held. The online conference was part of a new certification program launched by Antillean Adventist University (AAU) in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. The event, which was covered by media outlets across Puerto Rico, drew hundreds of viewers.

There’s a great need among families with children with autism, and it was important to provide awareness and expert advice during this conference, explained Dr. Ileanex Pérez, dean of the School of Humanities and Psychology at AAU and part of the organizing team of the virtual event.

A study done after the 2010 census in Puerto Rico revealed that 1 out of every 62 persons has autism, which totalled over 28,000 persons with autism on the island. Experts believe the number is higher today.
