BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Penn State

“We are … Penn State!” This simple chant is one of the most recognizable in all of college athletics. But it resonates far beyond sports. It’s a phrase that expresses the pride, resilience and achievement found in Happy Valley. Those qualities are regularly on display at Penn State, whether it’s during the frenzied, #FTK fun of THON every spring or inside of the futuristic home in the shadow of Beaver Stadium that’s seen by thousands of tailgaters each fall. Here’s a collection of recent LiveBIG stories that show the Nittany Lions’ roaring successes: Penn State football star makes sports safer, one

BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Ohio State

Bold. Brilliant. Benevolent. Or, in a word, Buckeyes. Across the country, people often think “sports powerhouse” when they think of The Ohio State University. And make no mistake: The school’s earned that reputation by winning the first-ever playoff for the college football national championship last year and turning in several outstanding performances on the gridiron and in several other sports for several decades now. But those who are part of this close-knit community — whether they live in Columbus, Colorado Springs or Corpus Christi — know that OSU has more to offer than top-notch athletics. Much more. Here are some

BTN LiveBIG: Kids with autism get help from Buckeyes and The Bard

During football and basketball games, BTN LiveBIG will spotlight notable examples of research, innovation and community service from around the conference. In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” is a treasure trove for the English language. Common phrases such as “all the devils are here,” “the stuff that dreams are made of,” “the past is prologue,” “strange bedfellows” and “brave new world” are all either derived or pulled directly from the text. When it comes to expanding people’s means of communication, The Bard’s works are a

BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota students put their minds and hearts into business venture

A desire to see kids as happy as possible brought out the entrepreneurial spirit of a group of University of Minnesota students. Wanting to make life easier for children on the autism spectrum, students in the university’s year-long Entrepreneurship in Action program created what they call a “Nesel Pack.” It works in a number of ways to help soothe kids with autism, who feel more comfortable when they’re secured. The specially designed pack has weights on the side, a hip belt and specially designed straps that are meant to feel like a hug. Minnesota senior Larry Lorbiecki, chief media officer

BTN LiveBIG: Penn State powers up social skills of kids with autism

During football and basketball games, BTN LiveBIG will spotlight notable examples of research, innovation and community service from around the conference. In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. When interacting with people on the autism spectrum, it’s important to remember that they have a unique perspective. It’s not that their brains don’t work correctly, but rather that they work differently. Dr. Suzy Scherf, professor of psychology at Penn State, was reminded of that recently when she encountered one of the students in her senior seminar who has Asperger syndrome. “This

BTN LiveBIG: Penn State alumna gives kids with autism the greatest gift of all

One of the hardest things for children with autism to do is something most of us take for granted: clearly communicate thoughts and feelings. And Dr. Nimisha Muttiah, a speech pathologist, advocate, teacher and Penn State graduate, has traveled the world to give these kids the ability and confidence to express themselves. Two events in Muttiah’s life set her on a course for helping these children. The first was a trip she took to her home country of Sri Lanka after earning her speech pathology degree in India. While there, she observed just how much work needed to be done

BTN LiveBIG: Former Michigan State b-ball standout finds second life in autism advocacy

Inspired by their experiences in college and elsewhere, these Pathfinders are passing by the typical, well-trod career paths and blazing their own trails. We’ll explore the unconventional approaches these Big Ten alums are taking to work. Athlete. Husband. Father. Inspiration. Spartan. Former Michigan State basketball player Anthony Ianni is all of these things and more. Ianni’s journey hasn’t been easy or typical, but it’s certainly been inspirational. At the age of four, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), which is on the autism spectrum. It can make regular social interactions challenging, as PDD affects how a person processes

BTN LiveBIG: Firefighter raising autism awareness

Last October, Purdue University firefighter and paramedic Blair Blanch attended a program led by Bill Cannata of the Autism Law Enforcement Education Coalition (ALEC). For Blanch, the session was not just any old lecture. Blanch’s son, Nicholas, who will turn six years old this June, has autism. “I instantly felt connected to the message this program was putting out there in that autistic children are a very at-risk population,” Blanch says. “I spoke up several times and gained the attention of Bill. He joked I should run the program.” Blanch, 39, did not think much about his activity at the

BTN LiveBIG: Innovation, opportunity at AutonomyWorks

What do you get when you match major marketing power to social cause efforts to increase employment opportunities for adults on the autism spectrum? You get AutonomyWorks, winner of the 2013 Chicago Innovation Awards. Two years ago, founder Dave Friedman identified an opportunity to match the skills of the autism community with the needs of many industries. He brought on another major marketing executive, Bryan Van Dyke, to be the chief operating officer a year ago. Van Dyke is working hard to introduce AutonomyWorks to corporate leadership. LiveBIG talked with University of Iowa alumnus Bryan Van Dyke to discuss the
