Students with Autism Are Headed to College—Is Your Institution Ready?

In the next decade, more than half a million children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) will enter adulthood. And it is estimated that nearly half of them will enroll in a university, college, or technical/vocational school. They will add diversity to campuses as well as an element of challenge. Setting up ASD students for success—whether in dining hall social interactions, on the playing field, or academically in the classroom—requires significant groundwork on your part.

Prepare your institution to serve this growing population of students: Join student affairs expert Aaron W. Hughey in this information-packed live webinar to learn the proactive steps you can take to ensure students with autism succeed on your campus and become a vibrant part of your school’s community.

After attending this audio event, you will understand the characteristics of college students who are on the spectrum, the ethical and legal obligations you face when serving them, how to help ASD students cope with a new and unfamiliar environment—and how to get your staff on board with key strategies for meeting the needs of this student population.
