Connections for Academic Success and Employment (CASE)

South Plains College

UPDATED: May 27, 2021

The CASE program offers an innovative college support program for students, diagnosed with Autism and other developmental disabilities pursuing an academic degree at Texas Tech University or South Plains College in West Texas. With the support of the Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research, the CASE program provides research-based, customized supports for students to facilitate their successful transition to college and the entrance into competitive employment after graduation.

Faculty and staff of the CASE program use the Wraparound Planning Process and the Birkman Method Assessment to build an individualized support network, which pairs each student with a Learning Specialist who provides mentoring and navigational support. This relationship empowers students to problem solve their concerns more effectively and efficiently with professional support.
