Is there an advocates program available?

Yes.

The Autism Advocates Program at Kent State University within Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is a program that strives to provide support and empower undergraduate students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and for those who think they may be on the spectrum. Students will be placed with a faculty or staff member for support throughout the academic year. This program allows the student to meet with their advocate six times a year (three times in the fall and three times in the spring) to problem solve and create strategies for academic success with the ASD student in mind. All information shared is completely confidential. Please note you do not have to be registered for services with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) to participate in this program.

For more information or to sign up for this program, please contact Zachary Strickler at strick1@kent.edu or 330-672-8037.
