    ADCET Webinar: Mentoring during the Time of COVID

    Over the last few years, a number of universities have implemented specialist peer mentoring programs to support students on the Autism Spectrum with their studies.   While many of us appreciate the positive impact these can have for students on the spectrum, what’s the impact for the mentors?  This webinar draws on the experience of a panel of student mentors from across Australia to explore the personal and potential professional benefits of being a mentor.  Mentors will also share their insights on the impact of COVID-19 on their role and for their mentees, and will offer some suggestions for supporting students on the Autism Spectrum during these times.  When: Wednesday 12 August, 2020.

    Applying Universal Design to Address the Needs of Postsecondary Students on the Autism Spectrum

    By comparing instructional strategies that benefit students with ASD to UD strategies reported in the literature, the authors illustrate how a teaching method that benefits a student with a specific disability such as ASD can inspire the development of a UD strategy designed to benefit all students. Potential benefits of the UD approach for students with ASD are revealed and recommendations are made for future research as well as professional development and support for faculty that can be delivered and/or promoted by disability support personnel.  (Sheryl Burgstahler  and (Rose) Rosalie J. Russo-Gleicher. Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, 28(2), 199 - 212)
