There were times when Daniel wasn’t sure what his future would look like. Although he was bright and capable, Daniel dropped out of Rochester Institute of Technology after his freshman year. Diagnosed with Asperger’s at age 12, Daniel struggled with time management, anxiety, and motivation issues.
When he first enrolled in CIP, Daniel’s GPA at Indiana University was 2.3. Like most CIP students, Daniel was enrolled in college while attending CIP’s year-round program. Slowly, with hard work and support, his GPA climbed to 3.7. Daniel will graduate this summer from Indiana University with a double major in Computer Science with Honors and Mathematics.
“CIP was there for me and helped me become a better student,” commented Daniel. “They basically sat down with me until my work was finished.”
Daniel received support in the areas of life skills, academics, executive functioning, and ways to work through the anxiety that had previously sabotaged his academic progress.
“We got what all the parents want,” stated Daniel’s father Loren. “CIP helped Daniel get through school. There were bumps along the way, but he totally changed in terms of being organized. I am convinced that this would not have been possible without the support of CIP.”
“Daniel’s experience at CIP was life changing,” commented Daniel’s mom Suzanne. “CIP gave him the one-on-one support that he so desperately needed.”
Daniel has a full time engineering job with the Microsoft Excel team.
