The Northeast Hub team, led by The Ohio State University, will study what support services are valued by students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and promote academic success; and which academic, social, and employment experiences are correlated with increased employment outcomes.
The Ohio State University Nisonger Center has been in existence since 1966, among the first group of federally-funded University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). The Nisonger Center has a reputation for its interdisciplinary research, education/training, clinical services, and dissemination activities. With a strong and dynamic interdisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians, teachers, staff, and trainees, the faculty and staff of the Nisonger Center strive to improve the lives of people with intellectual and neurodevelopmental disabilities across their lifespan. Nisonger Center is proud to be part of The OSU Wexner Medical Center, College of Medicine, Office of Health Sciences, and Ohio State’s Neurological Institute. We have approximately 120 faculty and staff from more than 15 professional disciplines across six OSU colleges (Medicine, Public Health, Dentistry, Nursing, Arts & Sciences, and Education & Human Ecology). The OSU Nisonger Center’s mission is to improve the lives of people with neurodevelopmental disorders and their families. We accomplish our mission with a vision of developing and providing the highest quality interdisciplinary care, education, and research to support the inclusion of people with neurodevelopmental disorders in all aspects of community life
