HUNTINGTON — Following an executive session during its regularly scheduled meeting Friday at Glade Springs Resort, the Marshall University Board of Governors appointed two new members to the West Virginia Autism Training Center advisory board.

Nathalie Henchey, of Hurricane, and Christy Robinson, of Charleston, were named to the board.

Henchey is a complex case manager and Robinson is a pediatrician. Both are parents of children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.

The Autism Training Center at Marshall provides training, information and support to West Virginians with autism, their families, educators and other people.

The mission of the center is to provide education, training and treatment programs for West Virginians who have autism, pervasive developmental disorder (NOS) or Asperger's disorder.
