The Autism and Communication Center (ACC) promotes practices that support inclusive schools and communities based on the notion of presumed competence for autistic students and adults. ACC empowers individuals to choose and use alternative forms of communication in order to realize their educational and civic potential and to become meaningfully included in school and community settings.
By making your gift today to the Autism and Communication Center, you are directly supporting our mission. This year alone, we are dedicating $50,000 raised from donations to create a comprehensive training program for educators in school settings to support communication needs of nonspeaking autistic students. Your donation will enable us to continue offering educational, communication, and community inclusion resources—through training, workshops, conferences, and research—to students and the teachers, providers, caregivers, administrators, and families who support them.
Your choice to support the Autism and Communication Center on Cal Lutheran Cares Day is appreciated. Thank you!
