Find A Program That Fits
United States College Programs for Autistic Students represents a helpful guide for autistic students, parents of autistic students, high school teachers, advisors, student affairs professionals, researchers, and other individuals interested in identifying various college-based programs designed for autistic students.
Developed by Catherine Tobin McDermott and Brett Ranon Nachman, with contributions by Ann Hartlage, Brittany Jackson and Anne-Marie Orlando, this PDF features more than 75 programs located at colleges and universities throughout the United States catered exclusively/primarily to autistic college students. The PDF represents a culmination of a more than one-year project that entailed reviewing all 4,500+ higher education institutions in the United States and identifying colleges/universities with programs for autistic college students.

But websites, videos, curricula, presentations, and events cost money.
So we need your help!
