    Overview

    Students entering grades 10-12 with autism spectrum disorders, and their parents, will obtain valuable information about post-secondary education and career exploration.

    Students on the spectrum will be given a unique opportunity to interact with college professionals and current college students during informational sessions and a student panel. Session topics include: self-advocacy, rights and responsibilities of college students with disabilities, and post-secondary education/career exploration including a Career Assessment Inventory. Parents and students will also receive information pertaining to financial aid and other services available to students with disabilities.

    Choose from the ASPIE virtual one-day session or the on-campus program that runs for two consecutive days. The on-campus version gives participants the opportunity to experience living on campus by staying overnight in the housing complex.
