More and more students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are attending college. Many college students may not know how to interact and welcome fellow students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. As a result, many college students may be likely to misunderstand their peers with ASD’s communication and interactions, which can lead to frustration and distance between both groups. To address this lack of understanding, I created a workshop for California State University Monterey Bay students to address the importance of being cognizant of fellow students with ASD.
