PASSPORT to Success is designed to support students with a range of neurodivergent needs (i.e. ASD) that are enrolled at La Salle University. The PASSPORT to Success program provides opportunities to develop life-long skills that prepare students for the social and independent living demands in a university setting (i.e. personal maintenance, domestic maintenance, interpersonal and recreation/leisure skills). Formal accommodations are not addressed through PASSPORT to Success; however, with the support of faculty, staff and student volunteers at La Salle University, PASSPORT to Success nurtures students’ transition to the college environment.
PASSPORT program goals are developed within a team that provides an individualized plan for strategies and supports for academic support and social objectives to assist students in reaching goals for successful employment and independent social interactions.
Every student develops a profile that emphasizes existing strengths and challenges while developing needed objectives within their academic and social competencies to promote greater levels of independence.
The ideal candidate for PASSPORT has the intellectual academic capacity to succeed at college as a full-time student along with the drive and potential to thrive within an environment supporting extracurricular university activities.
