Alabama Power Foundation has awarded a grant to fund equipment for Faulkner University College of Health Sciences’ pediatric and adult therapy gyms at the Mike and Lewis Williams Center for Autism.

The grant, which comes from non-ratepayer funds, will purchase equipment that will allow the center to provide physical therapy and occupational therapy, in addition to the speech therapy the center has provided for the last four years.

The center also provides hands-on experience for College of Health Sciences students that are involved in speech language pathology, physician assistant, physical therapy and occupational therapy programs. It also serves the community with pro bono healthcare services.

Alabama Power Foundation has provided 20,000 grants and scholarships to Alabama communities, educational institutions and nonprofits since 1989.
