Project REACH at CSI Featured in Huffington Post

May 04, 2016

The City University of New York’s Project REACH program works to support college students on the Autism Spectrum.  The program, including the efforts at the College of Staten Island’s Center for Student Accessibility, was discussed in a Huffington Post article.

“You can talk at people all you want about social skills,” said Kristen Gillespie-Lynch, assistant professor of psychology and director of Project REACH at CSI, “but there has to be an element of doing it for people to learn it. … That’s why we have the group classes.”

“That’s one of the biggest changes and challenges for students with disabilities when they enter college,” said Joanne D’Onofrio, associate director of the Center for Student Accessibility at CSI. “They have to learn to be effective self-advocates and they may never have learned those skills when they were in high school.”
