Summer Immersion

Summer Immersion Experience

The Summer Immersion Experience allows collegiate members to gain a deeper understanding of autism spectrum disorders by collaborating and developing connections with Autism Speaks while spending a week fully immersed in the focus points of our partner’s mission: understanding and acceptance, family services, advocacy and research.

As part of past Summer Immersion experiences, participants had the opportunity to partake in the following activities:

  • Tour multiple autism research facilities and observe actual real-life scientific research
  • Meet with legislators on Capitol Hill to discuss autism legislation and insurance reform
  • Tour Ivy Mount, a school that serves students with autism
  • Experience volunteer opportunities at the National Capitol office of Autism Speaks
