Create an Inclusive Community that Moves from Rhetoric to Action to Meet Unique Needs

1.8 million to 2.6 million college students fall under the autism spectrum - impacting approximately 10 – 14% of today’s students attending your institutions. *

How well are you adapting and providing students with autism the assistance, resources, and opportunities to succeed?

Anyone on your campus who interacts with neurodiverse students will benefit from this webinar. Learn the difference between being “autistic friendly” to implementing “high impact” practices that are inclusive for all students, so you can help neurodiverse students overcome challenges and resistance to becoming active participants on campus and be more successful in their transition beyond graduation.

Join our expert presenter on Monday, March 13, 2023, and in just 90 minutes, you and your staff will learn about eight guiding principles - based on a comprehensive, multi-campus research project at Dublin City University in Ireland – needed to create an autism-friendly environment. Increase the success of your students with autism by building intentional support initiatives, providing additional resources, and establishing opportunities for neurodiverse students’ voices to be heard within the campus community.
