Several colleges and universities provided information about their support programs for students on the autism spectrum and shared with the families what they can do now to prepare their students for going to college.

Becky talked about the department’s specially-designated Journeys to Success (ACAD 1300) course that focuses on neurodiversity and learning strategies for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as the forthcoming low-sensory lounge that will allow students to hang out and socialize.
