Audrey Litster ('08)
Audrey graduated in special education with a focus on severe disabilities and taught in Provo and Boise before moving to New York. She is currently working in the New York Center for Autism Charter School in Manhattan. The school specializes in applied behavior analysis, which Audrey studied at BYU and is now applying in working one-on-one with her students.
She says that combining a spiritual education with secular content at BYU has helped in her work by giving her mental and physical strength as well as help in guiding her students when logic and science fail. In a field where it’s easy to get burned out and in which good people are needed to improve the system, she advises, “Stay motivated and passionate about the field.” Audrey is married to Eric Litster.
