Supporting Autistic Student Success Initiative (SASSI)

St. Cloud State University


This SASSI project aims to examine how St. Cloud State University (SCSU) can provide individualized and intensive support services and strategies to recruit and retain more students with autism. Emphasis will be placed on integrating existing student support services, the Communication Sciences and Disorders Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, and other School of Health and Human Services programs. The data and information gleaned from the project will help inform best practices in serving the academic and non-academic needs of autistic students not only at SCSU, but across the entire system.
