Stairway to STEM is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization headquartered at 2 Haven Street, Suite 206, Reading, MA 01867.

Stairway to STEM is an online resource for autistic students, their parents, and post-secondary STEM instructors: our mission is to help students on the autism spectrum realize their capacity for success as they transition to collegiate environments and beyond, as well as to build their confidence, resilience, and self-efficacy.

The goal of the project is to produce tools and events designed to:

  • Build awareness of academic and employer-based STEM programs among autistic individuals
  • Promote existing evidence-based practices to an expanded community of educational institutions, autistic students, and their families and employers
