College Students with Autism: An Expanding Frontier, presented by Guest Dr. Jane Thierfeld Brown, Director of College Autism Spectrum – Accessibility Resources and Services Event
April 22, 10:00 am to 11:00 am
Students with Autism add richness and diversity to our college communities. Are college campuses informed of the needs of the Autistic community? Are we celebrating neurodiversity and differing perspectives? We will discuss this unique perspective and the impact that COVID has had in creating positive outcomes for students.
Presenter: Dr. Jane Thierfeld Brown, Director of College Autism Spectrum, former Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale Child Study, Yale Medical School and former Director of Student Services at the University of Connecticut School of Law
