Levine’s practice Helping Children with Challenges is in Lexington, and she also has supervised and supported Lesley University graduate students on a volunteer basis.

“Karen Levine’s willingness to provide Lesley University graduate students mentorship, support and supervision through field experiences at her clinic on a volunteer basis is an example of the collegiality and openness she brings to her work,” said Elizabeth Stringer Keefe, an assistant professor of special education at Lesley in a press release announcing the award for Levine.

Levine is the first recipient of the Lesley Autism Hero award. She lives in Bedford and was the co-founder and co-director of Boston Children’s Hospital Autism Program in the early 1990s.
