LGBTQQIA Identities and Student Contact – with facilitator CM Hall, on February 4, 2021, at 2pm.

Autism Goes to Planet College: Practical Strategies for Atypical Students – presented by Charlotte Y. Alverson, PhD & Christina Howard, PT, MPT, Ed.D., on February 16, 2021, at 2pm-3:30pm. Students with autism who are transitioning from secondary school to adulthood experience some of the lowest education and employment outcomes across all disability groups, regardless of intellectual function. The social-cognitive differences experienced by students with autism are widely accepted as the primary barrier to meaningful employment and relationships. Faculty, service providers, and parents who understand characteristics associated with autism, and set high expectations for students with autism, measurably contribute to improved outcomes in education, employment, and quality of life. In this session, attendees will strengthen their knowledge of autism and student success predictors. Through guided discussions with parents, educators, researchers, and students, attendees will identify strategies to use in their work with students that support effective learning through access and inclusion.
