The Learning Academy & Employment Services at USF

The Learning Academy at the University of South Florida is a customized transition program that assists in preparing young adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder for employment. The Learning Academy provides services, supports and experiential opportunities that develop and enhance each student's independence in meeting personal career goals. Our students engage in self-discovery and career exploration through real-life experiences such as internships and peer mentoring which allows generalization of learned skills. The Learning Academy Employment Services assists employers in finding and developing the right people for the job while building a diverse and sustainable workforce.
