Autism Spectrum in Higher Education: Making the Most of Communication with Earlee Kerekes-Mishra (She/Her/Hers) and Tay McEdwards ​(He/Him)
In the U.S., Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) impacts an estimated 1 in every 59 children and approximately 90% of individuals with Autism are unemployed or underemployed. We will focus on one of the main barriers impacting individuals with ASD, communication. Together we’ll journey within to explore our own preferred communication style and examine how this influences our interactions. The goals of this session are to expand your toolkit for effective communication to improve performance of individuals on the spectrum and learn how to create inclusive environments in higher education for people experiencing ASD.
