Berkeley has three offerings for students with ASD’s. The first is a facilitated social skills discussion group. In addition, there is an intensive program for students who are clients of the state Department of Rehabilitation. From the website:
Our UC Berkeley Disabled Students’ Residence Program (DSRP), in conjunction with the California Department of Rehabilitation (DOR), currently offers services for students with ASD to help increase their academic success. We offer intensive Independent Living Skills (ILS) training for students living on or off campus (Phase 1). Upon completion of Phase 1 services, less intensive Phase 2 services are available to students to ensure their continued academic success. An individualized assessment is conducted to determine each student’s ILS needs. Special Assistants help students to learn ILS by teaching, demonstrating, and monitoring, but do not perform the tasks on behalf of the student.
Berkeley also partners with the College Internship Program to serve students with ASD’s.
