AERA 2015Giving Voice to College Students with Autism
American Educational Research Association – April 2015
The primary research question for this study is: How do adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder make sense of and respond to autism-specific barriers to postsecondary success? Drawing data from in-person interviews of adults with ASD who have attended college, this study gives voice to an often-overlooked population of college students and highlights opportunities to improve postsecondary experiences for students with ASD.
The AERA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research. It is a showcase for ground-breaking, innovative studies in a diverse array of areas — from early education through higher education, from digital learning to second language literacy. It is where to encounter ideas and data that will shape tomorrow’s education practices and policies, and where to connect with leading thinkers from the U.S. and around the world.
