Dub-C Autism Program provides supports to degree-seeking West Chester University students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Mission Statement

The mission of D-CAP is to provide a supportive and inclusive campus community for our degree-seeking, autistic students, at West Chester University via indirect and direct supports. 

  • Staff and students provide indirect support to faculty, staff, and peers via informational sessions, panels, department trainings, individual problem-solving meetings, and more.


  • Via a student-led approach, staff provide direct support in the following areas:
    • executive functioning
    • self-care/independence
    • inter-personal skills/social involvement
    • self-advocacy
    • professional development/ employment/career paths 

      Supports are provided via skill development and group sessions as well as social opportunities.

Why D-CAP:

  1. Have a community of autistic peers who understand, accept, and empower each other; while staff encourage self-determination and assist students with accomplishing their goals. 
  2. Have a judgment free environment to ask questions, discuss experiences, and better understand the changes of lifestyle/education/social interactions when going to college.
  3. Learn functional, independent adult living skills (including organization and time management).
  4. Learn professional skills to enhance job searching, resume building, and employment sustainability.
