Our projects seek to support our systems change work by improving public understanding of autism, empowering Autistic people to take leading roles in advocacy, and promoting inclusion, self-determination, Autistic culture, and disability rights.

Our current projects include:

Higher Education Programming

Our higher education projects support autistic college students as they transition to college and advocate for their rights. We provide an annual summer leadership academy to foster disability community on college campuses, as well as book-length publications to help autistic students successfully transition to college and advocate for themselves in higher education settings.
