PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support at Saint Joseph's University is expanding its commitment to college students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by offering an on-campus residential option that builds community and provides increased support. The residence hall is a new frontier for autism at college as it will be located on a traditional college campus and is set to open in fall 2022. This new option will be available to undergraduate students enrolled in the ASPIRE program, an immersive program led by Kinney's team of trained professionals that provides students with ASD with a wide-range of personalized support services. The expansion of services aims to enhance the transition from adolescence into adulthood for individuals on the spectrum, as the number of young adults on the spectrum continues to grow.
