Webinar: Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASDs)

March 28, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Increase Retention, Graduation and Employment Outcomes by Meeting Their Unique Needs

While growing numbers of autistic individuals are attending college, they are less likely to graduate than their neurotypical peers. Students with neurodiversity often require additional support, resources and considerations inside and outside of the classroom to successfully engage and persist. Today’s campus professionals and faculty members can form successful relationships with autistic students if they have the tools they need to identify, engage and support them in ways that positively impact their college and career success.

Join our expert presenter on Monday, March 28, 2022, and in just 90 minutes, you and your staff will be able to increase the success of your students with autism spectrum disorders through engagement, retention and employment efforts that meet their unique academic and career needs.
