Stairway to STEM is an online resource for autistic students, their parents, and post-secondary STEM instructors. Our mission is to help autistic students realize their capacity for success as they transition to college environments and beyond. We support student confidence, resiliency, and self-advocacy.

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
