The puzzle piece is a group for GWC students on the Autism Spectrum. Students who regularly participate in the Puzzle Piece will develop the skills nec-essary for social interaction with peers, professors, and staff in order to reach their academic goals successfully. Effective learning and life strategies are explored through workshops, interactive games, team building exercises and presentations. In addition, students benefit from social interaction, peer support and shared life experiences with other GWC students with ASD.
