In Their Own Words: College Students with Autism

Thursday, August 9, 2018 -
9:00am to 12:00pm

Students with autism are a growing population on college campuses. Services and programs are growing across the country and Pennsylvania is leading the way. The commonwealth has more programs for students on the spectrum than any other state. Current students will talk about what the experience of college is like, how they have adjusted to a new environment and different type of education than K-12. A history of the programs and their development in the commonwealth will precede the panel. Students, professionals and parents will all benefit from hearing the discussion from this knowledgeable panel.
