Event Description

Practical Strategies to Assist, Coach and Supports Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Transitioning to college is an exciting time for all students and comes with a variety of challenges. Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may need additional support to navigate this transition successfully and adjust to living independently. Additionally, parents and students may need coaching on the differences between K-12 policies and college expectations. Characterized by an insistence on uniformity and repetitiveness and deficits in social communication and interaction, students with ASD will be faced with many new demands related to academic, social, and self-management spheres, which they may have never handled on their own.

This webinar with expert speaker Dr. Peggy Mitchell Clark will identify the range of individual characteristics displayed by students on the Autism Spectrum, explain what happened to Asperger's Syndrome, and review the challenges of college life for students with ASD. You will learn practical strategies to assist, coach, and support students with ASD as they transition to living independently and are stretched academically, socially, and personally. At the end of this program, you will have a better understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder and how you can help college students on the Autism Spectrum achieve success.
