The College Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder staff are the driving force behind the Allies Supporting Autism Spectrum Diversity initiative.
Allies Supporting Autism Spectrum Diversity is a program implemented by the West Virginia Autism Training Center and the College Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The College Program provides individualized skill building and therapeutic supports to degree seeking students with Autism Spectrum Disorder through a mentored environment while navigating a college experience at Marshall University. A positive support system is a key foundation to a quality life for an individual with autism. Becoming an ally through the Allies Supporting Autism Spectrum Diversity initiative is a great way to spread support and awareness throughout your community.
The WV ATC’s Allies Supporting Autism Spectrum Diversity project works to inform and educate individuals or groups who wish to provide a safe and accepting environment for individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Our mission is to advocate for diversity and promote understanding in order to support and develop awareness.
