Autism on Campus: Disability or Difference, and Why That Matters

PC 46

Autism is one of many types of neurodiversity, but instead of being seen for the potential value such diversity brings, it is commonly referred to as a "disability." But what if we could look at it differently? What if we learn to view autism and neurodiversity the same way we view diversity and difference of other kinds? Using current research and case studies, participants will grow in their understanding of autism and how we can serve our neurodiverse students.
