FAU Breaks New Ground for Students with Developmental Disabilities


FAU Breaks New Ground for Students with Developmental Disabilities

Florida’s K-12 system has many programs to help students with developmental disabilities advance academically, but a void has long existed at the college level. That’s about to change. FAU has just announced plans to launch the Academy for Community Inclusion, which will give these students the opportunity to continue their education beyond high school. The Academy, a unit of the College of Education, will begin operating on our Jupiter campus in the coming spring semester. Its curriculum will include courses in subjects that promote academic success and employability, such as effective study techniques, time management, soft skills for the workplace, personal finance and internet safety.

FAU is the first public university in Florida to offer a specially designed higher education program for students with developmental disabilities. As an institution dedicated to diversity, we’re proud to serve these students and committed to addressing their needs. Applications for the spring 2016 semester are available online.
