Benchmarks to Inclusion: Creating Core Principles to Facilitate Autistic Student Success in Higher Education

How can colleges and universities make sure autistic students succeed? For our white paper “Benchmarks to Inclusion: Creating Core Principles to Facilitate Autistic Student Success in Higher Education,” we brought together autistic college students to discuss what success looks like for autistic students, and how colleges can help them get there. Our white paper unpacks barriers to success, looks at how those barriers can be addressed, and lays out ten core principles to make higher education more accessible to autistic students.

A summary of “Benchmarks to Inclusion” is also available in three formats:

  • an academic summary aimed at researchers and professionals
  • an Easy Read factsheet that uses pictures and large text, and
  • a Plain Language version without accompanying graphics.

 

Thanks to our focus group editors for their work on our Easy Read and Plain Language summaries:
