In graduate school, Dr. Kimberly A. Schreck met a 14-year-old boy with autism who changed her life.
The boy didn’t just sleepwalk – he threw furniture out of second floor windows while sleeping. Schreck began wondering whether the boy’s sleep deprivation contributed to his aggression.
“Nobody had ever looked at that,” said Schreck, now professor of psychology and program chair of social sciences and psychology at Penn State Harrisburg.
Her graduate school advisor said, “You’ll spend your career working on this.” He was right.
