Location

The Autism Project located at Long Beach Middle School, 204 North Cleveland Avenue, Long Beach, MS 39560.  

The USMGC Autism Project is a university-based program that is run by employees of The University of Southern Mississippi.  The project, housed within the Long Beach School District, includes the Autism Demonstration School. It is located at Long Beach Middle School, 204 North Cleveland Avenue, Long Beach, MS 39560.  

While the project is not a part of the Long Beach School District, the project's placement at Long Beach Middle School is very beneficial as it enables the project's staff to demonstrate, through the operation of the Autism Demonstration School, how to design and implement appropriate educational programs for students with autism in an actual school environment.
