Comprehensive Autism Program (CAP)
UPDATED: May 26, 2021
Comprehensive Autism Program (CAP) is an autism spectrum student group that was developed by DSPS counselors/staff and students in 2014. Since its inception, the group has evolved into a multifaceted support system for Golden West College (GWC) students and employees.
Students in CAP have access to invaluable personalized services that enhance their scholastic and personal success. They receive individual academic, social-emotional, career, and transfer counseling, and create impactful personal connections with support staff and faculty. Students have the option to work with the same counselor from intake to graduation, receive academic coaching and case management oversight, attend workshops, and experience an array of peer mentoring and campus activities.
Peer connections are a highlight of The LOOP, a student organization within CAP. The LOOP members meet weekly with their advisor, virtually or in person, to discuss topics related to being a college student. Through The LOOP, students develop meaningful relationships with peers and support staff, which enhances their sense of belonging at GWC and in the community.
