There are barriers – both physical and attitudinal – that deny access to autistic college students on today’s college campuses. In this webinar, the presenter shares discoveries learned while working with autistic students in regards to how peer mentoring and other supports are effective in helping to diminish and remove these barriers. Participants will also have concrete ideas, both large and small, that they can implement in their programs, for themselves and/or for their students that will remove barriers to access and begin to affect change in outcomes for autistic students.

Removing Access Barriers
for Autistic College Students
Sara Gardner, Program Manager, Autism Spectrum Navigators
Susan Gjolmesli, Director, Disability Resource Center
Bellevue College, Washington State, U.S.A.
 
Research Shows
Youths with autism spectrum disorders (ages 19-23) are less likely than those with other disabilities to be employed or enrolled in college
Students with disabilities lack adequate self-advocacy skills needed for success in the postsecondary education setting
Employment rate rises with family income rates
 
Our Experiences
Without additional access services, college students with ASDs complete fewer classes, and drop out of college at a higher rate
College students with ASDs typically do not seek out campus services or additional support from instructors
Even with an extraordinarily low cost program, some families cannot access it for financial reasons
