Time: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST
Presented by: The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN)
Leaving high school and going to college is complicated for everyone. But if you’re a student on the autism spectrum who is about to enter higher education for the first time, it might be a little bit more complicated for you. Maybe you’re worried about getting accommodations, getting to places on time, or dealing with sensory issues in a new environment. Maybe you could use some advice on how to stay healthy at school, handle dating and relationships, or talk to your friends and classmates about your disability. Maybe you want to talk to someone who’s already dealt with these issues. In this webinar, speakers from the Autistic Self Advocacy Network will share with you their college experiences and offer some advice that they wish they would have had when they went off to college. Listen in to hear these stories and advice and ask your own questions about the college experience.
