There are about 20,000 children and adults in the Greater Akron area with autism. Now, Cleveland Clinic Akron General is specifically working to accommodate adults on the spectrum. For one doctor, these changes are personal.
Dr. William Lanzinger is a hand surgeon at Cleveland Clinic Akron General and the board chairman of the Autism Society of Greater Akron.
But he’s also a father.
“From a parent perspective, any time there is any accommodation done for my son, I would say I am very grateful,” Lanzinger said.
