Dedicated to helping students living with ASD maximize their potential during the college years as they prepare for life after graduation.
The CSP addresses the needs of college students living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Supportive services are targeted to individual needs and are offered in context, as students attend classes and experience life on a college campus. A part of the Cushing Center for Counseling and Academic Support, the CSP has a close and complementary relationship with disability services, counseling, academic tutoring, and the Writing Center. It also serves as liaison to Easternâ€™s faculty and staff, providing them with ASD-specific information, training, and consultation.
The fact that Eastern University devotes resources to support students living with ASD is not accidental. The Universityâ€™s mission is to prepare students for thoughtful and productive lives of faith, leadership, and service. This mission is extended to all people, including those who seem less likely to succeed in college. Pioneering the CSP at a Christian university not only aligns with our mission, but adds to the richness that makes Eastern University unique.
