“I’m not suggesting that all students on the spectrum need accommodations in college or need additional services. I don’t want to generalize…but for those who do have those needs, which is many students, they should absolutely get the ball rolling.”

“Some autistic students are extroverted and have lots of friends, and some are pretty good with executive function and can manage their schoolwork independently. So you can’t just assume one blanket approach for all students.”

PODCAST EPISODE 9:

“WHEN PROFESSORS ARE HELPFUL, IT REALLY HELPS.”

In this episode, Caroline talks with one of her professors at Cal State Fullerton, JudelMay Enriquez, about the ways they worked together. Caroline was struggling in a methods and research class. Even with accommodations, she found she got more support by visiting her professor during office hours to let her get to know her, and her learning style better. She also picked up strategies for keeping up in the course. They also discuss how professors can reach out to students on the spectrum who may benefit from academic support.
