Introducing Spectrum Innovates Pathway Program (SIPP)

A new model of transition to higher education and the workforce for individuals on the autism spectrum

Spectrum Innovates Pathway Program (SIPP) is a gateway to higher education and the workforce for those whose passions include aviation, aeronautics, aerospace, engineering, and related fields. SIPP incorporates the most advanced approaches to learning to create a revolutionary 12-month experiential education program that addresses one of the most significant challenges for autistics:  making the move to life beyond high school.

SIPP integrates academic, social-emotional, executive function and life skills with a blended delivery of experiential, classroom and virtual instruction. A strengths-based approach advances technical and academic learning, while concurrently developing essential social, practical and workforce skills. SIPP merges these essential components facilitating those on spectrum to work productively and independently as required in today’s job market, a crucial step to sustained competitive employment.

What You Will Learn

– How did a simple question posed by a parent observing his autistic daughter and her friends spark the creation of Spectrum Innovates?

– What are the underpinnings of SIPP’s methodology and why do they set it apart from other approaches?

– What are the implications for the future of educational practice for autistic and allistic learners?

SIPP is funded in part by a research grant from the National Science Foundation, Advanced Technological Education division
