As the number of students on the autism spectrum attending college steadily climbs, schools and students alike are trying to figure out how to manage the unique challenges experienced by this community. Getting accepted is often easy enough, but once on campus, navigating college can be challenging in many ways, often leaving students to figure it out as they go along. AUTISM GOES TO COLLEGE is a first of its kind film, packed with honest insights for students, parents, and educators that offers an eye-opening look at what a growing number of neuro-diverse students are bringing to campuses. Attend this event as part of marking Autism Awareness Month.
Discussion after the film will be facilitated by Dr. Susan Wilczynski, Plassman Family Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Applied Behavior Analysis.
Directed and produced by Erik Linthorst. The Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences has awarded Autism Goes to College a gold medal for diversity, equity & inclusion.
The film is 1 hour 2 minutes long and includes mention of school shootings and bullying of neurodiverse children.
