Practice Brief: Interdisciplinary Support Services for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Longtin, Susan
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v27 n3 p333-342 Fall 2014
This Practice Brief describes a grant-funded pilot program at an urban four-year public college, developed to address the needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This Interdisciplinary Collaborative Support Services program provided (1) more clinical assistance for students with ASD to promote their academic and social success; (2) education, training, and supervision for graduate student mentors; (3) in-service training for faculty, staff, students, and administrators; and (4) a resource library related to the target population. This article describes the work among the different program partners to offer interdisciplinary, collaborative services for the students who elected to participate in the initiative and reports both the positive outcomes and challenges of the program. This article concludes with suggestions for expansion of the practice and research opportunities on the efficacy of the model.
