Kelberman The Center of Excellence for Autism College Support


We are committed to serving teens and adults with autism and intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) wherever they are on their journey, by providing support both in class and on campus. Currently, we participate in the InclusiveU Program at Syracuse University.

  • Students are matched with a peer mentor who will assist with navigating campus, registering for classes, eating on campus, setting time aside to focus on work, and more.
  • Help facilitating school work and communication with school staff.
  • On-campus activities and campus community engagement.
Discover-U Program
  • Participants develop work readiness skills with support in work environments on the Utica University Campus.

What Can College Support Partnerships Do For Me?

Peer mentoring can lead to life-long friendships and provide:

  • Support for organization and time management.
  • In-class support and help exploring campus resources.
  • Guidance in accessing technology and services that are a part of the college experience.

Why Kelberman

Our state-of-the-art Autism programs, resources, and inclusive services help children, adults and their families impacted by autism or intellectual and/or developmental disabilities find engaging ways to interact with the world around them.
