Treffert Lecture Series Monday Night In FDL

There’s only a few days left to register for the 10th Annual Marian University Treffert Lecture Series. Dr. Darold Treffert, a world-renowned autism and savant syndrome expert, says during the presentation Sarah Lee will comment about finding and developing the talent of her gifted son Ping Lian Yeak. His artwork will be on display, and he will be creating art during the presentation itself. Dr. Treffert first met the two about 10 years ago. He says Yeak’s talent was discovered after his father took him to a fair and bought him ice cream, which was in a colorful intricate patterned paper cup. He says Yeak recreated the art himself in his room and when his mother saw it she knew he had talent. The program is Monday night at 7 p.m. at the Stayer Center. Those who wish to attend should register at the Treffert Center website.
