Autism Goes to College According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in every 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, a neurodevelopmental disorder. Metropolitan State University of Denver serves approximately 100 students with an ASD diagnosis. Although many adults with ASD excel in a wide range of skills, college environments can be challenging due to reduced structure, social and communication demands and the increased need to manage time effectively.

To learn more about the strengths and challenges of adults with ASD in college, please join the Department of Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences, the MSU Denver Access Center and the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association to watch a screening of the movie “Autism Goes to College.”

Free screening of “Autism Goes to College.”
