Are you interested in supporting college students with autism? Would you like to develop your professional skills, or perhaps launch a new initiative on your campus to improve the experience of autistic students? Are you a scholar with an interest in neurodiversity in postsecondary education?
The third annual College Inclusion Summit brings together practitioners and scholars in a collaborative and highly-engaging three-day conference. Special features of the conference include an optional pre-conference workshop for those looking to develop a new program, or strengthen an existing one, as well as a post-conference symposium to advance the application of research-to-practice. In between are panels of experienced professionals, student and alumni self-advocates, and breakout sessions led by practitioners and scholars from around the country.
The 2019 Summit is organized by the College Autism Network, a nonprofit organization committed to research, training and advocacy in support of autistic college students, and this year will be hosted by Vanderbilt University’s Frist Center for Autism and Innovation. Sponsors include Mansfield Hall, Western Kentucky University’s Kelly Autism Program and the University of Vermont’s College of Education and Social Services.
The Summit is a low-cost, enjoyable and practical way to bring new ideas and connections to your campus on behalf of a growing population--students with autism and related disabilities or learning differences.
