Understanding College Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Effective Instructional Approaches for ASD Students

Dr. John Harvey
Thursday, September 22
11:30AM - 1:00PM
LSC 590

About the Event

Given recent advances in research into Autism and in providing effective treatments, more and more ASD students are now attending college creating both challenges and opportunities for college instructors.

This presentation will begin by developing an understanding of Autism from the inside as explained by college students with ASD. Then as a group we will consider the specific strengths and weaknesses, the specific advantages and liabilities that ASD students bring to the college classroom.

From this foundation we will review and examine the current effective instructional strategies for teaching ASD at the college level and brainstorm on techniques suitable and appropriate for our setting.
