City University of New York Offers Unique Program for Students with Autism

CUNYHere's some good news in a bad news world. City University of New York (CUNY) has implemented a program to assist students on the autism spectrum. Called "Project Reach," CUNY has identified a burgeoning need to educate and support its rapidly growing number of students who have Autism Spectrum Disorders, and it hopes to become a national leader in providing a variety of higher education opportunities for these individuals. (In January, the private FAR Fund awarded the University a oneyear, $100,000 grant for a preliminary initiative called REACH: Resources and Education on Autism as CUNY’s Hallmark.

Imagine if our kids could attend college with the necessary support they need to meet their potential? It would be life changing in terms of self-esteem, income earning ability, socialization and more.  Thank you to CUNY for this program.  Feel free to share this info with your local colleges to encourage them to being a program in your area.  Here's their invite for an event (for students only.)

This is presented pitch perfect by Age of Autism, as always.

CUNY is indeed leading the way. I was working as a senior writer for the university - which has 24 campuses throughout the five boroughs --when I first heard about this initiative and I was so impressed by CUNY's understanding of the need. Thank you so much for running the piece. I know CUNY's efforts are so important to us all.
