Founded in 2010, The College Link Program (CLP) is an ancillary student support services program designed to provide services beyond the typical accommodations provided through the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our mission is simple: to help students who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder to transition and succeed in the higher education environment.
Our goal is to assist students in leveraging their individual strengths to facilitate academic and social success. The CLP staff fosters educational, career, social and independent living skills through creative and flexible approaches to individual needs. The CLP philosophy is to increase student independence and decrease dependence on familial and coaching support over the course of the student’s educational career.
