USCAP COLLEGE AFFILIATIONS AND REFERRALS

USAAA has an international presence. The USAAA 2010 Annual World Conference became the most-viewed autism conference in the world. With a sold out audience, over 34,000 additional people viewed the event online at USAAA TV. Families from around the world turn to USAAA to receive support and training to meet the needs of college students with autism spectrum disorders.

USCAP creates professional alliances, establishes standards for training, educates and aligns with colleges and local community resources and offer support and training for mentors, family, friends, and classmates.

As colleges complete the recommended training and consultative support provided by the USCAP, they will be "recommended" by USAAA as an educational setting that is prepared to meet the needs of college students on the spectrum.

Dr. Stephen Shore, EdD, is on the USAAA Advisory Board and is a professor at Adelphi University in New York. He is diagnosed with autism and teaches graduate school and emphasizes that Adelphi University has a good program for students on the autism spectrum. Another school that contacted USAAA is the University of West Florida that has a program for students with ASD. Visit College Confidential's blogs and parents forums. Schools that come up supporting students with ASD are Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia and Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts.

While the following schools have not used the USCAP model for training, this information may be of help for students seeking college admission for students with autism or Asperger's Syndrome.

Dr. Lars Perner is a professor at the University of Southern California and he also has autism and emphasizes "that as with any other autism related issue, college choices must be based on the unique circumstances and characteristics of the individual, and no simple formulas can be offered". Dr. Perner has prepared "COLLEGE PLANNING FOR STUDENTS ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM".

Learn more about the USCAP uniquely tailored Curriculum where students on the spectrum come together with college staff, faculty, interested students, and supporting outside resources to not only learn more about all areas of the autism spectrum, but also to be able to implement a program that will ultimately create an opportunity for individuals on the autism spectrum to have a successful college and transition to work experience.
