Autism Liaison Program

The Autism Liaison Services at Mississippi State University were developed through the Autism & Developmental Disabilities Clinic (ADDC). Autism Liaisons offer services and support to degree seeking students on the Autism Spectrum to facilitate their success at Mississippi State. With a focus on building skills in self-advocacy, socialization, and employment, our team can meet a wide range of individual student needs.
