What support is available in the post-secondary setting?

It is essential to ask the right questions while exploring post-secondary programs/fields. The ASPIE program is the perfect opportunity for high school students in grades 9th-11th with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their parents to obtain valuable information pertaining to post-secondary education and career exploration. The ASPIE program will run for two consecutive days on 6/19/14 and 6/20/14. It will give participants the opportunity to experience living on campus by staying overnight in the housing complex.

How students and parents can benefit

Students on the spectrum will be given a unique opportunity to interact with college professionals and current college students during informational sessions and a student panel. Session topics include: self-advocacy, rights and responsibilities of college students with disabilities, and post-secondary education/career exploration including a Career Assessment Inventory. Parents and students will also receive information pertaining to financial aid and other services available to students with disabilities.
