The Autism Liaison Services at Mississippi State University was developed through a collaboration with Student Support Services (SSS) and The Autism & Developmental Disabilities Clinic (ADDC). Autism Liaisons offer services and support to degree seeking students on the Autism Spectrum to facilitate their success at Mississippi State. With the assistance of Student Support Services, the Liaisons can meet a wide range of individual student needs.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a pervasive, developmental disorder. Students with ASD experience social communication and interaction deficits across multiple settings. Many students with ASD engage in restricted, repetitive, patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. ASD varies in severity across individuals, abilities, and intellectual/adaptive functioning.
Students who are interested in services provided by Autism Liaisons must be enrolled at Mississippi State University, have a diagnosis consistent with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and must be registered with Student Support Services.
* Services are Free of charge for those registered through SSS.
Disability Support Services seeks to provide educational access and opportunity through support, resources, advocacy, collaboration, and academic accommodations for students with disabilities (as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) who are accepted to the University.
This clinic serves individuals from childhood through early adulthood who have been identified as having Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or other developmental disabilities. Students who meet with Autism Liaisons will do so at the clinic.
