Horizons is a mentoring program designed to enhance success of those on the autism spectrum who plan to attend university. Participants will be paired with a UMass Lowell Psychology student who will be their mentor. Pairs will meet once a week for 6-weeks and discuss a range of issues relevant to university life and achieving academic success. Meetings for the next available program will start in October 2011. Meeting times will be arranged between the participant and their mentor.
