Autism and the Student Conduct Process: Support Begins with Understanding

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.
