Bridges to Adelphi Program Showcase

The Bridges to Adelphi Program offers comprehensive academic, social, and vocational support services to over 100 Adelphi students who self-disclose with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other non-verbal learning disorders. People with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other non-verbal learning disorders often see the world differently, which allows them to “think outside of the box”, and interpret the world extremely creatively; or as Temple Grandin would say, they “Think in pictures”. The artwork that you will see in this show are examples of the creativity, and outside the box thinking, of students enrolled in the Bridges to Adelphi Program.

The Bridges Program services are designed to make that transition from high school easier for college students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, nonverbal learning disabilities, or problems with socialization. They offer regularly scheduled meetings to help with executive functioning and time management issues, problem-solving skills, and a wide variety of social opportunities.

A reception will be held Sunday, August 28, 2016 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.
