    Each year, more information about the college experiences of those on the autism spectrum is written by their parents, professionals and these students on the autism spectrum. Intellectually these students are often very bright but many face a variety of 'hidden challenges' that can undermine their ability to navigate a typical college campus and perform well in class. This workshop will discuss some of the challenges and possible academic supports for students on the autism spectrum. We will also rely on participants to contribute strategies and challenges as we work together to implement supports and services for the university, the student, and faculty.
