Defiance College is pleased to announce comprehensive services supporting students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
As the number of children diagnosed with ASD increases, the need is greater than ever to provide for avenues of success into adulthood. Higher education can be an appropriate step for many college age students with ASD who are academically able to succeed but may require social and living support to navigate the traditional college residential campus.
Defiance College’s ASD Affinity program supports college students with ASD in reaching their full potential. Varying levels of academic, social and residential support are designed to aid students in meeting their personal and professional goals.
