Autism Welcome Here: Home


The School of Education, Health and Human Performance at Fairmont State University first implemented the AIMSS program in 2015. AIMSS provides individualized planning to develop strategies and support for each student accepted into the program. Students accepted into the AIMSS program must meet criteria for admission to Fairmont State University.  

Students and Program staff work together to identify and develop individualized supports based upon the strengths, abilities, and needs of each student. AIMSS staff provides academic, social, and daily living supports designed to help students complete a degree program. Staff also develops individualized plans to help students learn skills for becoming independent members of the college community at Fairmont State University.

The Office of Accessibility Services at Fairmont State University

The Office of Accessibility Services at Fairmont State University is dedicated to facilitating equal access to all institutional opportunities for students who have disabilities. We collaborate with administrators, faculty, and other personnel on campus to identify and remove barriers to foster an all-inclusive campus. It is the responsibility of the student to self-identify to our office. Once registered, the Office of Accessibility will work with students to establish accommodations, aids, and services. Through an individual consultation, a staff member will engage in an interactive process with each student to understand how his or her disability intersects with the institutional environment and how accommodations can reduce barriers to success. The Office of Accessibility Services is located in 316 Turley Center and can be reached at (304)333-3661. For more information, please CLICK HERE.
