The X-Path Program is a program established to provide individualized support for students on the autism spectrum or with related disorders. Support and coaching is tailored to the needs of each participating student to promote the development of academic competence, social integration, and self-advocacy. The mission of the X-Path Program is to increase opportunities for success for students who have autism and related disorders. Each student will work directly with the Accommodation and Support Coordinator and will also be assigned to a Peer Coach.
Xavier University strives to ensure that qualified students with documented disabilities receive reasonable and appropriate accommodations. Academic accommodations and support services are provided to ensure equal access to educational opportunities to Xavier students with documented disabilities. The mandate to provide reasonable academic accommodations does not extend to adjustments that would “fundamentally alter” the nature of the course, course components or course requirements.
