The ASCEND Group, in coordination with local institutions of higher education, will present a panel discussion with college staff members as well as students on the autism spectrum who attend these colleges.
The panel will discuss resources, share their experiences, and offer their advice and insight into college life. Topics include executive functioning, independence requirements as well as suggested planning and services that can be utilized to help support students through graduation.
The intent of this session is to help families/caregivers plan for a future for those students who wish to pursue higher education.
