Improving College Outcomes: Autistic STEM Students

Autistic students with intellectual disabilities actually have better college outcomes than those without. A growing body of research and best practices for students, families, and educators clearly demonstrates how we can address this challenge. This panel will focus on steps that students, families, and educators, K-12 and college, can take to improve college outcomes, which have a significant impact on students' sense of belonging and accomplishment.
