The workshop will also briefly review Autism Spectrum Disorder, how it may affect a student and strategies to work successfully with a student living with ASD. The workshop will review strategies to help you respond to a student in distress, outline university and Student Health and Wellness response protocols to streamline access for a student to professional services, and provide you with an understanding of how to respond to a student in distress or crisis.
