The Cody Center College Support Program

at Suffolk County Community College

Michael W. Grant Campus,

Brentwood, New York


The Cody Center’s College Support Program (CSP) is a collaborative program run in conjunction with Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) and Stony Brook University. The College Support Program (CSP) is designed to provide students with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities key transitional support and coaching to better enable them to succeed at college.  

The College Support Program is primarily staffed by a learning disabilities specialist and a licensed psychologist. This program is currently run on SCCC’s Grant Campus, which is located in Brentwood, New York. 

Each week during the fall and spring semesters, students in the CSP attend two groups, which meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays (from 12:30 to 1:30). These groups address critical skill areas such as: executive functioning (e.g., planning, setting goals, prioritizing assignments, organization), study skills and habits, social issues encountered at college, and self-advocacy. Students in the CSP may also meet with the staff members for more individualized help with these areas.

Family involvement is encouraged. Each student and his or her parents are scheduled to meet with the College Support Team prior to the start of the semester, midway through the semester, and after the semester has concluded. The student’s goals and progress are discussed at these meetings. A social worker is also available to meet with students and their families to discuss additional community supports, services, and resources that may be available to them.
