CAMPUS INCLUSION LEADERSHIP TRAINING FOR STUDENTS WITH AUTISM - August 2012
ASAN INVITES COLLEGE STUDENTS WITH AUTISM TO CAMPUS INCLUSION LEADERSHIP TRAINING
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) with the help of the Mitsubishi Electric American Foundation is launching a new program for college students with autism. In August 2012, ASAN will be inviting 13-18 students with autism to participate in the Autism Campus Inclusion leadership training. Drawing from the Navigating College handbook and the Empowering Autistic Leaders booklet scheduled for release in early 2012, participants will learn valuable skills to affect systems change in their individual campuses and increase their own skills in self-advocacy and self-help.
If you are a current college undergraduate student who identifies on the Autism Spectrum, including Autistic Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, with a strong interest in the Disability Rights and Autistic Rights movements, we invite you to apply for this leadership training. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a higher education institute or college in the US with at least one year left after completion of the leadership training.
