Overview: This webinar will identify the range of individual characteristics displayed by students on the Autism Spectrum, explain what happened to Asperger's Syndrome, and review the challenges of college life for students with ASD. Participants will learn practical strategies to assist, coach, and support students on the Autism Spectrum as they transition to living independently and are stretched academically, socially, and personally. At the end of this program, participants will have a better understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder and how they can help college students on the Autism Spectrum achieve success.
 
Why should you Attend: Without a concrete plan and accurate understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), parents and students will be ill-equipped to cope with the challenges of transitioning to college and experiencing academic, social, and personal success. College life can be overwhelming for the student on the autism spectrum who struggles with sensory sensitivities and communication and interpersonal deficits.
