A student and parent organization that focuses on SUCCESS!


Autismerica is an organization for students with autism and their parents. Each month, Autismerica explores a different aspect of college success for students. There's social time, too, with pool, ping pong, chess, checkers and video games. Parents are also given an opportunity to connect with each other. Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month. All are welcome. For more information, contact Michael Duggan at (630) 942-2845 or email

Student Services Center (SSC)
Room 1200

For our October meeting, we will have a representative from We Grow Dreams, a non-profit organization that provides people with developmental disabilities employment opportunities, present their program. Meetings average between 50 to 70 participants and all interested parties are welcome!
