Transition Autism Program (TAP)

The Transition Autism Program is designed to meet the specific needs of students on the Autism Spectrum as they transition from high school to college. We bolster success in academics by direct support from professional staff.  This unique program provides peer mentoring to improve interpersonal relationships and establish a connection at Harper, specialized academic support, and a parent support component.  In addition, there are Job Readiness workshops that include resume writing, interview skills and job search strategies.  TAP selects and approves cohorts of new student on the Autism Spectrum each Fall semester.  TAP students are also offered multiple opportunities to be sociable, at ADS Success Club meetings and at other on-campus events each semester.


We are now accepting applications for the Fall 2020 TAP Cohort.
