improving outcomes at college
College graduation rates for highly capable neurodiverse students have been shown to be as low as 20%. We’re proud of the 92% graduation rate achieved by our college coaching clients.
We help Autistic and other neurodiverse students successfully navigate the academic and social complexities inherent in the college experience. Evolve coaches provide highly individualized support that is tailored to each student’s unique needs and personal goals. Common focal areas include:
Self-advocacy and communication
Online coaching is available for students who live outside of the Pittsburgh area. Contact us to see if Evolve’s college coaching is right for you.

Highly Qualified Coaches
Evolve coaches hold relevant master’s degrees and specialize in supporting young adults with developmental disabilities including, but not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger’s Syndrome), ADHD, and anxiety disorders.
A Personalized Approach
We believe that one size does not fit all. Our coaches work with you to help you achieve your personal goals, whether it be improved self advocacy, organization, time management, or another skill.
Meet your coach twice a week on campus or virtually via secure video conferencing.
Strong Relationships with Colleges & Universities
As a Pittsburgh-based organization, we regularly work with students and faculty at 13 local universities. We also support out-of-state clients through online coaching, and can help you navigate your campus services.
Our college group meets weekly to discuss the changing landscape of college life. Learn tips for making strong connections with others and advocating at the college level.

Access to Peer Mentors and Body Doubles
Share a meal or explore campus with a peer, or take advantage of "body double" sessions. Similar to an online study hall, body double sessions offer the space for you to finish that paper or assignment that's been hanging over your head, reload funds to your dining card, or send that email that's been weighing on you with the support of an evolve team member cheering you on.
