A Campus for Diverse Minds: Supporting Neurodiverse Students
Neurodiverse students are increasingly enrolling in our college, but they continue to face barriers and challenges on campus. We had the opportunity to offer a seminar that focused on inclusive resources to meet a wide range of needs in relation to neurodiversity- Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and other cognitive and emotional differences in the university setting.
This seminar was facilitated by Dr. Sally Burton-Hoyle, sister to a person on the autism spectrum, past member of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC), and panelist on the National Quality Forum for PCP Planning and Practices. Dr. Burton-Hoyle has developed both graduate and undergraduate programs in Autism Spectrum Disorders at Eastern Michigan University. She also founded the College Supports Program at EMU.
This seminar was held on Wednesday, October 18th. To view the Zoom recording and the PowerPoint slides from this session, please click the links below.
