What is Campus Connections:
Our innovative program is designed to support neurodiverse college students with various disabilities as they attend the post-secondary institution of their choice through either in-person or virtual support. Our team uses the Wraparound Planning Process and the Birkman Method Assessment to build an individualized support team, which pairs each student with a Connections Coach who provides mentoring, guidance, and navigational support. This relationship empowers students to problem solve their concerns more effectively and efficiently while also fostering informed choice and greater self-advocacy.
Our program model includes:
- Initial and Ongoing Career Assessment focused on Student Strengths, Interest, and Career Goals
- Monthly Wraparound Meetings with their coach which may include their parents, VR Counselor, DRC staff, other university support staff, and really any other support person the student chooses to invite
- Group Skills Training/Activities will be offered each week via in-person or virtual delivery focused on Soft Skills, Team Building, Time Management, Organization, Planning, and Career Development.
- Weekly 1-on-1 Scheduled Support Session with Coach
- Additional As-Needed Support at Student Request Delivered In-Person or Via Phone, Text, or Video Call
- Ongoing Service and Support Coordination designed to foster Self-Advocacy and Informed Choice
