Rutgers Center for Adult Autism Services (RCAAS)

THE RUTGERS CENTER FOR ADULT AUTISM SERVICES (RCAAS) is a center at the Rutgers-Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP). At the RCAAS, we offer adults on the autism spectrum a one-of-a-kind experience to lead as independent and fulfilling a life as possible. The current absence of support and funding for most adults on the autism spectrum and their families is not acceptable. The RCAAS exists to stand for those adults on the autism spectrum who are not always able to stand up for themselves, and whenever possible, to amplify the voices of those who can.

Supporting Community Access through Leisure and Employment (SCALE)
The SCALE program is the RCAAS’ flagship work-day services program for adults age 21+ that provides an array of support needs, ranging from vocational training and social support to academic and clinical services.

For application and day program information, please email: [email protected]

College Support Program (CSP)
The CSP supports matriculated Rutgers students on the autism spectrum through weekly Coordinator meetings, collaboration with key campus partners, and more. Students accepted to Rutgers University can apply to the CSP to receive crucial academic and social support during their undergraduate years.

For specific questions about the CSP, please email: [email protected]

Psychological Services Clinic (PSC)
The PSC is a training center that provides both psychological and assessment services for autistic adults or those seeking a diagnostic evaluation for autism. These services are provided by doctoral students and trainees who are supervised by a licensed clinical psychologist.

Intensive Outpatient Clinic (IOC)
The IOC has been designed as a community-based resource for adults with autism that have complex, crisis-level support needs beyond what can be met at other existing treatment settings throughout the state.
