Autism at Pitzer

Hi. My son has been accepted to Pitzer. He’s on the Autism spectrum, gifted academically, but less fluent socially. What is your opinion of the Pitzer community’s openness and acceptance of such differences?

When I visited campus I did not see much disability diversity. These are some of the reasons I may not go, since I am profoundly deaf.

Hmm, I think it could be okay. Did he go to accepted student day?

My daughter has a friend at Harvey Mudd who is on the spectrum. She is doing well there. Not Pitzer but basically the same campus. She is also gifted academically.

Yes, and he did go to accepted students day and he enjoyed it very much.
