About the Academy

ACI helps Autistic students learn to make their college campuses better for people with disabilities. ACI participants learn about making student groups, understanding disability policy, and talking to people in power. During ACI, all participants go to the U.S. Capitol to talk to their Senators and Representatives about policies important to the disability community.  After the Academy, students get help from ASAN to meet their advocacy goals at their college.
