MOSSAIC

Mentoring, Organizational, and Social Support for Autism Inclusion on Campus

The University of Washington Speech and Hearing Sciences Department, in collaboration with Disability Resources for Students (DRS), now hosts the UW MOSSAIC program:

Mentoring, Organizational, and Social Support for Autism Inclusion on Campus

Currently, MOSSAIC offers a peer mentoring program for students on the Seattle campus.

A peer mentor is a guide, coach and navigator – a different kind of role and relationship than with a therapist, tutor, or friend. MOSSAIC peer mentors work together with mentees to identify personal challenges and set goals related to the college experience, and then provide ongoing support to help mentees reach their goals (e.g., navigation to campus resources, assistance with time management strategies and tools, strategies for communication with professors or in group work).

*Please note that our peer mentors are neurotypical undergraduate students at the UW; we are currently looking for peer mentors with autism at the UW. Let us know if you or someone you know is interested in becoming a mentor.
