Helping College Students with Autism
Technology is spurring a wonderful statistic: one-third of teens with autism are now heading to college. And just as students are leaving their texbooks behind for digital versions, any supports they need also often virtual.
As a student at Midwest Academy in Carmel, Ben and Noble Behavioral Clinician Patrick Jamison would meet regularly. Now that Ben is pursuing a degree at the College of Music Technology in Los Angeles, he and Patrick rely on Skype to connect. It's proven an effective tool for two other young adults on Patrick's caseload too.
As for Ben, he just wants to tell the world his story through his guitar. To learn more about Behavioral Therapy, please email or call Diane at 317-254-6623.

Her Positivity Is Simply Infectious
Kelsey’s favorite song, “Wherever You Will Go” by Alex Band, reflects her personal journey since she graduated from Noble’s Project SEARCH in 2014 and the goals she has set. This immersive internship at St. Vincent Carmel equipped Kelsey and her classmates with the skills to transition to the workforce.
For Kelsey, that meant landing a job she loves at Trader Joe’s through Community Employment. Beyond that, however, Project SEARCH helped Kelsey regain her self confidence. Today she gives motivational speeches at schools and advocacy organizations, and even shared her story at this year's Raising the Stakes for Noble.
