Our Goal: Creating access to educational and vocational
opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum
Our first vocational initiative is the "Paralegal Assistant
Training Program (PLAT)"

in partnership with the prestigious Boston Conservatory
The overarching goal is to support each student's
life-long engagement and enjoyment in the arts

Our Mission

Acknowledging that the incidence of autism has risen dramatically in the past two decades, the Autism Higher Education Foundation recognizes that the current lack of life-long learning opportunities in higher education, music and the arts for individuals on the autism spectrum is a civil rights issue which demands immediate action. The Foundation’s long-term mission is to create, improve and provide access to educational and vocational opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum who aspire to continue to advance their learning beyond high school but are otherwise unable to do so.
