Elizabeth Getzel, M.A., M.A., VCU-RRTC
This webcast describes results of structured interviews with college students on the autism spectrum concerning their experiences in college and specifically their career planning experiences. Students with ASD attending two and four year higher education programs in Virginia provided their perspectives on what information, services and resources they need to better prepare for their careers. The presentation will describe emerging themes based on the students’ knowledge of, and participation in, career related services and supports.
