About Our  Group Programs
  • All Hussman Center programs are group programs. Towson University students participate in programs along with Hussman Center participants. Program Instructors, Towson University faculty, and Hussman Center staff help both Hussman Center participants and Towson University students learn from each other. So that learning for all can take place, Hussman Center participants need to be able to interact (verbally and/or non-verbally) with Towson University students.
  • Across all of our programs and activities, Hussman Center participants and Towson University students build skills in the following areas: self-expression, self-advocacy, self-regulation, team work & collaboration, and problem solving & decision making.
  • Because Hussman Center programs are group-based programs and are attended by university students who are learning too, we do not offer formal behavior support. We do not implement formal behavior programs. Participants must be able to join activities without a 1-to-1 aide or staff member. We do this so participants and Towson students can interact with one another and learn from one another.
