EQU 117-CTL: Adapting to the Needs of Diverse Learners: A Closer Look at Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Login Required1 Session | Tue, Apr 27 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Tue, Apr 27 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
The CTL is honored to host this workshop, which will be led by Erica McMahon. This workshop is presented as part of Autism Acceptance Month. All employees are invited! Despite sufficient academic abilities, many students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) struggle to communicate with fellow students and instructors and to adapt to the ever-changing college campus environment. The move to mostly online learning has made it even more difficult for diverse learners to succeed. Through a shared activity and presentation, participants will become more aware of how to support students with ASD and be given specific examples of accommodations to "level the playing field" for these students.

This past year has pivoted the nation into an unprecedented year of social justice, social change and a call to action. As the world responds to a global pandemic, racial tensions, and violence, how can the classroom serve as a space for positive social change? Did you know that five times as many enslaved Africans were trafficked to Latin America than to the present United States? The world language classroom and other disciplines are fertile ground for incorporating race from a global perspective. What are the experiences of minoritized communities in Spanish and French-speaking countries, and how do they intersect with life in the United States? This workshop will center the world language classroom, but is highly applicable across all disciplines and for co-curricular departments and staff.
