Milestones happen every day at the CEC!

 

Explore. Learn. And Celebrate! Those are the things we do every day at the Suzanne Vitale Clinical Education Complex at WKU. We celebrate when our students learn about reading, science, math, and music. We celebrate social skills like getting along with others, problem solving, taking turns, and friendship. 

The Suzanne Vitale Clinical Education Complex (CEC) at WKU is a place where families are accepted and supported while navigating unique challenges that others may not understand. The CEC enhances socialization and communication skills while enriching the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder and Developmental Delays and Disabilities.

The CEC collaborates with university academic programs and community agencies to remove barriers and create opportunities for inclusion for our clients. Our professional faculty engage in applied research and professional development, and the CEC offers vital hands-on clinical experiences for WKU students who are studying in related fields.

The CEC serves hundreds of clients each year, and with your support, we can continue to have a positive impact on the lives of families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and Developmental Delays and Disabilities.

Your financial support can help create even more milestones and more celebrations!
