How prepared are you teach students with unique abilities, such as those on the autism spectrum? In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about the characteristics, portrayals and experiences of college students on the autism spectrum, as well as engage in activities and scenarios aimed to most inclusively teach this student population. Participants across disciplines will come away with new insights and approaches for serving these students, as well as incorporate principles of universal design that may benefit their students more generally.
