Joan Johnson

Joan Johnson received new funding from New Chapter Inc./Autism Speaks for the project “College Access for Students with ASD.” Beyond Academics is NC’s first and only four-year, on-campus, fully inclusive postsecondary certificate program for students with intellectual disabilities. The certificate in Integrative Community Studies is offered by the Office of Undergraduate Studies. Eligible students with Autism Spectrum Disorders enrolled in the certificate program or in various degree studies may be considered for scholarships through this fund beginning in Fall 2014. In collaboration with the Office of Accessibility Resources and Services, a selection process will determine scholarship recipients. UNCG is only one of 11 universities/colleges awarded this funding. Johnson is director of UNCG’s certificate program for young adults with intellectual disabilities.
