LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Susan Whitelock, assistant professor of English and writing, discusses how colleges can be prepared to help students with Autism Spectrum Disorder succeed Thursday, May 8 at EOU.
Whitelock’s colloquium presentation “Looking at Collaboration through the Eyes of College Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception with time for questions and answers will follow.
The number of students entering college with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which now includes Asperger Syndrome, is growing. Whitelock stresses the importance for college students, staff and faculty to better understand the challenges these students face as they enter college classrooms and other college spaces, especially as demands include social interaction.
Whitelock references the concept of universal design for learning, based on the theory of universal design in architecture, as a helpful tool for faculty to think of curriculum as a building that needs new access ramps to help students with ASD succeed.
