With today’s greater awareness, research, and interventions, ever-increasing numbers of people with autism are entering higher education. Many of the common challenges encountered by college students on the autism spectrum transitioning from high school and home into a college environment will be explored. Some areas of discussion include obtaining academic accommodations and strategies, legal issues, residential and housing considerations, as well as developing self-advocacy skills while the student is still in grade school.
Participants will learn practical solutions for supporting young adults on the autism spectrum to succeed in higher education.
