    About The Hussman Institute for Autism:

    The vision of the Hussman Institute for Autism is to improve the lives of individuals with autism and their families by creating a continuum of supports and resources to address the needs for evidence-based teaching methods, communication, inclusion, connection, and independence.

    Our perspective is not that autism is a tragedy that must be eliminated with a cure, nor that those with autism must be turned over to be “fixed” by therapists in segregated settings. Rather, our goal is to provide resources to support those with autism within their homes, schools and communities and enable learning, communication, and meaningful relationships through day-to-day engagement with those around them.

    The Hussman Institute for Autism is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in Maryland.

    Does this look familiar in your Blackboard courses?

    What do your students see? 

    Want to fix this for all of your documents?

    On Wednesday, October 23 we will again be holding a workshop where you will get hands-on assistance to turn all the red and yellow indicators to green, in order to provide alternative formats for those using assistive technologies. Remember, Ally focuses on making new and existing content more accessible for all users, not just those with disabilities/accessibility challenges.

    Please have your documents that need adjustments readily accessible either on a thumb drive, or through your email, or one-drive.

    The session on October 23rd will be held in Haas Library, Room 434, 1:30pm – 3:30pm

    Please RSVP to coxc@wcsu.edu.
