our programs and services
Individualized support for neurodiverse college students & job seekers
We work one-on-one with neurodiverse individuals, in person or online, to help them meet their personal and professional goals in college, the workplace, and daily life. We also provide services to local businesses and organizations to help them promote inclusion in the workplace and community.
the evolve difference
We actively partner with university staff and faculty (including disability services, the career center, counseling, tutoring, etc.) to build a team around the student; we aim to help students access campus resources so they can thrive without us after a few semesters.
Coaches hold masters degrees in social work and similar fields; our team leverages our experience navigating 6+ years of our own post-secondary education, and our clinical training to offer expert support to students requiring individualized approaches.
Our college coaching support can be accessed anywhere. Support is individualized based on student need, and all students will have access to:
twice-weekly contact with a coach in support of self-advocacy and executive functioning
weekly groups and "body-doubling"/accountability sessions
access to workshops (crash course to college success, resume-building, and more)
While national graduation rates are approximately 39% for Autistic students, 92% of Evolve's college students graduate from their chosen post-secondary programs - some receiving coaching support for 4 years and others who engage in only a few semesters of support.
