With the incidence of autism rising, a growing number of college students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are choosing to pursue their college degree at RIT. We value these students as part of our diverse community and acknowledge that some individuals may need additional support in transitioning to college. This workshop will discuss the strengths and challenges students with ASD bring to the college experience and some strategies that can be used to support their collegiate success.
