College Support Programs Becoming More Common

When Marshall University developed its College Support Program for Students with Asperger's Syndrome in 2002, there was very little on which to model our service. Since that time, however, more institutions of higher learning have recognized the need for similar supports, and several colleges and universities have developed and implemented them.

This blog will maintain a list of four-year academic institutions that offer specialized supports, embedded within the college system, for individuals with an autism spectrum disorder. The list, kept under "Higher Education Support Programs," (on the right of this page, near the bottom) is not an endorsement of any particular program; it is intended simply to serve as a source of information.

I welcome emails from anyone interested in adding a known program to the list.
