College Program: Farleigh Dickinson University – COMPASS

COMPASS is a college-based support for students with Asperger’s Syndrome. This program provides support to students during their first two years of college so that young adults may discover new competencies, enhance coping skills, and explore new opportunities. This program supports up to six incoming students and is an individualized, comprehensive academic and social support program. Skills that are specifically worked on in the program include self-advocacy, knowing when to self-disclose, and self-monitoring. These skills will assist students in recognizing and addressing their own areas of difficulty and knowing when to request help so that they can access support from the university.
