“Why are autistic college students getting straight A’s but failing their internships?” Presentation at NADD 32nd Annual Conference & Exhibit Show, The Fairmont, San Francisco, CA. November 20, 2015. Video available for staff training.
The traditional college journey does not quite happen for autistic people. The dream is achievable, but requires a strategy that is outside the expected norms. Thankfully, there are resources available for guidance and inspiration. For example, did you know that Temple Grandin enrolled in courses that helped her become an expert in Animal Husbandry, by piecing together a degree from online and campus lectures, some of them oversees? Guess what: Nobody cares about those details. All that matters is that she has a degree, and is valued for that achievement. So let’s get together and talk about this for yourself.
