Welcome Faculty and Staff

Welcome to the Learning Independence for Empowerment or LIFE Project information page for faculty and staff. This website is designed to give up to date research and information on best practices for teaching and serving students with autism spectrum disorders.

LIFE Project

We are striving to meet the needs of all of our students. Our main purpose in the LIFE Project is to promote awareness that revolves around:

- Understanding the strengths and limitations students with ASD and Asperger's Syndrome experience in postsecondary education

- Diffusing situations that may seem malicious or threatening

- Referring someone you suspect may have autism for services

How can I refer a student to BMAC if I am unsure as to whether or not they have a disability?
Tell the student that you know of supports on campus that have been helpful to students that are experiencing the same kind of challenge. You do not need to diagnose students or say that they may have a disability.

Can I reach out to BMAC for consultation and support for a challenge I am having with a student?
Absolutely! Please feel free to contact any of the individuals listed below. They all have expertise, teaching and counseling, students that present any challenges similar to those with autism.

Can my department have a specialized training for specific issues we are encountering?
Yes! Please feel free to contact the department for any training or consultation needs.
