2017 Association for Student Conduct Association Conference

[Panel] Challenge and Support on the Autism Spectrum: Lessons from the Field
Thursday, February 2, 4:45 PM Hyatt Regency in Jacksonville, FL

The rise in the number of college students with Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger Syndrome challenges our campuses to respond with services that support these unique, smart and sometimes-challenging students.  Three senior student conduct officers will share their experiences with, and insights about, a population that requires us to think differently about our work.

Supporting Students with Autism in the Conduct Process: Understanding, Compassion, Success
Saturday, February 4th, 9:00 AM Hyatt Regency in Jacksonville, FL

Campuses are seeing an increase in the number of students with diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger’s Syndrome.  These students bring with them social, behavioral and communication challenges that may be disruptive or misunderstood by the community, leading to allegations of misconduct.  Participants will learn about these traits and the strategies that might make a difference in responding to these students.
