Abstract: 
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that can cause difficulties in thinking, feeling, language, and the ability to relate to others (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). Currently, the CDC (Buescher et al, 2014), estimate at least 1 in 59 students are on the spectrum, and the numbers continue to rise. Here at IU, we have students on the spectrum with diverse needs from advisors, career coaches, and our disability center coordinators. Join us as we discuss our ASD student population on campus, how you can give them the support they need, and interventions that you can take to embrace inclusive habits in your interactions. Finally, students on the Spectrum will join us for a collaborative Q&A session.
