Different Is Not Deficient: Addressing Student Conduct Concerns among Residential College Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Miele, Amy N.; Hamrick, Florence A.; Kelley, Justin W.
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v44 n3 p30-45 2018
Institutions of higher education, and more specifically residence halls within colleges and universities, pride themselves in offering and embracing a diverse community of students. A growing number of students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are attending college and choosing to live on campus. While many are able to do so successfully, some students may behave inappropriately within the halls. Residence life professionals should have a foundational knowledge of anti-discrimination law and how that does or does not impact addressing student behavior within on-campus housing.
