Higher wages have been repeatedly connected with obtaining an undergraduate degree. When students are not able to successfully complete their degrees, careers with higher wages are not available for them. Over the last decade, an increasing number of colleges and universities have added additional support for students with autism (Kuder & Accardo, 2018). The overall goal for these programs is to help students successfully complete their degrees. Most often these support programs address the areas of independent living, social, executive functioning, and academics to help their students succeed. This presentation will look at what is known about the barriers students with autism and other disabilities experience at the postsecondary level, the research that has been completed on strategies to help students, and the need for working with families, community partners, and potential employers will be included. This presentation will also include a discussion on the current research being completed at the Autism Services Center at WMU.About the SpeakerKourtney Bakalyar is the director of the Autism Services Center at Western Michigan University.
