The Hussman Center for Adults with Autism brings together Towson University students and young adults on the autism spectrum to create a mutually rewarding learning environment. Social, educational and fitness programs support student learning and adults with autism as they develop the tools needed to lead meaningful and engaged lives.
We have created more than 350 fun social activities, art classes, comedy workshops, creative movement experiences as well as specialized training in language skills and personal fitness. Many autistic adult participants exhibit an increase in social interaction, wellness and community involvement.
More than 300 service-learning experiences have been created for Towson University students at the Hussman Center for Adults with Autism. Students learn best practices for working with adults on the spectrum and complete applied interdisciplinary research projects. Students who have participated consider this a life-altering experience. Many decide to go on to careers working in the field of autism where they will have the skills to support individuals on the spectrum and can help advocate for more accepting workplaces and communities.
