In June 2013, Professor Caren Sax and 11 graduate students from San Diego State University's Rehabilitation Counseling Program (RCP) were guests at the Living Lab in Oosterbeek and the HAN department of Educational Theory in the Netherlands. Launched in January 2012, the Living Lab is a work-based learning centre that provides life coaching for young people with an autism spectrum disorder. The aim is to strengthen links between research, education and practice.
