Autism Awareness Month,
CIP Students Embrace Autism Acceptance
From family festivals to 5K runs, CIP students across the country volunteered at a variety of events in April to help shine a light on autism acceptance. April is Autism Awareness Month, now more commonly called Autism Acceptance Month. As the number of people being diagnosed with autism continues to rise, April has become an important time to recognize, accept and empower individuals on the autism spectrum.
CIP is a national transition program for young adults on the autism spectrum and with other learning differences. Students at each of their five locations volunteered at events in their local communities to help raise awareness and acceptance of autism.
The College Internship Program is a comprehensive transition program
for young adults on the Autism Spectrum and with Learning Differences. Our Mission is to inspire independence and expand the foundation on which young adults with Autism, ADHD, and other Learning Differences can build happy and productive lives.
