This presentation will provide a brief overview of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), focusing on how individuals on the autism spectrum think and process information. There will be some brief discussion on assessment, based on the unique perspectives of individuals with ASDs. The presentation will describe comprehensive strategies and interventions that can be used and implemented in academic and therapeutic settings to create enriching academic and social environments. This will be accomplished through lecture and case examples. Those in attendance will be able to better understand the world of ASD, and based on this, will be able to develop their own interventions.
