“We saw the increase in students with ASD graduating from high school and in response developed College Link to help them achieve a college education, take advantage of their talents and learn to live independently. In our pilot year we enrolled five students, created a summer bridge orientation, and provided academic, daily independent living and social skills coaching. We also emphasize workforce skills. The most amazing part of their growth is in their participation in the campus community.”
