The Autism Campus Prep was written and developed by a group of us Autistic post-secondary students and graduates together with The Sinneave Family Foundation. The free course covers the following topics: selecting academic programs, understanding how to fully participate in work/social life on campus, and maintaining health and wellness. It is suited for any Autistic individual (their parent or caretaker) who may considering post-secondary education of any kind. It is online and asynchronous which allows participants to start/stop and jump to the topics that are most relevant to their needs at the moment. Have fun and enjoy!
