Visit to the Hussman Center
Following the employer roundtable, Secretary Beatty traveled to Towson to visit the Hussman Center for Adults with Autism. The center provides cutting-edge programming, training and resources for adults on the autism spectrum, Towson University students, professionals and others in the community. They offer two primary types of programs:
1) Group programs for individuals who identify as neuro-diverse that are offered in the spring, summer, and fall featuring inclusive Towson University student involvement.
2) College Orientation and Life Activities (COLA) for Towson University students who are on the autism spectrum. This program provides support in planning for success as a college student.
The Hussman Center also promotes evidence based outcomes through their innovative program model and sharing of this model with other universities, professional groups, and community organizations.
