The Asperger Initiative at Mercyhurst is available to students at this Pennsylvania college:

The Asperger Initiative at Mercyhurst is a program that equally emphasizes academic and social competence. AS/ASD students need help navigating the residence hall and the cafeteria, as well as the classroom and the library. They need to learn how to communicate effectively with teachers and roommates, as well as how to research and write a term paper. Development of social skills is as important to their eventual success as mastery of academic skills.
