  • 2. Our History… Dr. Richard Malott is a professor in the Department of Psychology at Western Michigan University. In 1996, he helped develop the Early Childhood Special Education classrooms that are now at WoodsEdge Learning Center. While still actively involved in those class- rooms, he has started the Kalamazoo Autism Center to supplement the Early Childhood Special Education classrooms. Five students are currently enrolled with varying sched- ules. We at the Kalamazoo Autism Center, would be happy to provide supplemental ser- vices for your child.
