SSP Coaches

The Spectrum Support Program utilizes both trained graduate students, from RIT or local colleges who have  both skills and interest in working with people with disabilities, and professionals with background and experience in Education, Counseling, Social Work, or related areas. 

All SSP Coaches receive comprehensive training in working with college students on the autism spectrum and receive close supervision and support from the SSP Director and Assistant Director.
