The College Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder was started in 2002. Students participating in the program have met acceptance criteria for Marshall University and have been admitted to the College Program through a separate application process. The program uses a positive behavior support approach to assist participating students. Social, communication, academic, leisure and personal living skills are assessed through person-centered planning.
Personal goals are identified and strategies are developed based on the individual needs of each student. The program seeks to help students learn skills which will help them earn a college degree, work in their chosen field, and live a productive, independent, and quality life.
