Preparing Students with ASD for College and Career

As the number of students Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) continues to rise, many students with ASD are now graduating from high school with the goal of entering postsecondary education and the workforce. Unfortunately, research indicates that most graduates with autism will have “a difficult time following high school for almost any outcome you choose – working, continuing school, living independently, socializing and participating in community, and staying healthy and safe. To complicate matters, many such youth begin their journey into adulthood by stepping off a services cliff.”

Join ICSPS for a day of exploring resources and materials, discussing strategies, and engaging in dialogue around supporting students with ASD as they transition into postsecondary education and the workforce. This workshop will explore resources created by the Autism Training and Technical Assistance (ATTA) Project to build a better understanding of the transition process, the unique barriers faced by individuals with ASD, and to assist in working towards or providing equitable access in the workplace or postsecondary setting.
