What is lifePATH®?

A post-secondary educational program for neurodiverse students. lifePATH®'s focus is to assist students as they: develop independence, exercise self-determination, increase knowledge of college-level academic expectations, practice the social expectations necessary for success in the adult world, and engage in opportunities for career exploration.

Program Options

  • Occupational & Life Skills Associates Degree - The Occupational and Life Skills is a four-year associate degree program developed for neurodiverse students in the lifePATH® program utilizing a cohort model. Students pursuing the OLSA take courses designed to enhance their academic, career, interpersonal, and intrapersonal skills. While the OLSA does not focus on a specific industry, its purpose is to help students develop transferable skills that can be applied to any industry.
  • Wraparound Supports  - Wraparound support is provided for lifePATH students taking traditional college classes. Wrapround support provides case management services for students taking traditional credit classes outside of the OLSA cohort. Wraparound supports include individualized weekly meetings; assistance navigating the college environment; strategies for managing stress and anxiety; and support team services
  • Foundations Continuing Education Program - lifePATH foundations is a two-year noncredit program offering select foundational classes included in the OLSA degree. The foundation program provides students with the opportunity to learn academic strategies; grow and practice social skills; and explore and develop career skills. lifePATH Foundations courses are taken through the Lone Star College Continuing Education Department. Students will not receive credit for these courses but will receive a certificate of completion.
