March 22 | 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. | MEC 256

The increasing number of students on the autism spectrum entering post-secondary education present higher education institutions with challenges previously not an issue. Many students lack the self-management skills needed to independently organize and integrate all aspects of college life. This session will provide some instructional strategies that may help you prepare a successful course, materials and evaluation tools that would help all students, including those students with autism in your classroom.
