FIU Embrace

UPDATED: January 12, 2021

FIU Embrace is a university-wide initiative that promotes health, wellness, and overall functioning for adults with developmental disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disabilities (ID), and other neurodevelopmental disorders (OND). It seeks to help these persons lead healthy lives and maximize their individual potential across their lifespan.

FIU Embrace utilizes a person-focused, household-centric approach, recognizing that people with developmental disabilities deserve to be treated as individuals with personal patterns of talents and challenges. Through education and dissemination, services, and research opportunities, we strive to positively impact the lives of individuals affected by developmental disabilities, their families, and learners.
