If you want to learn more about autistic college students, want another (autistic) perspective, or are just curious about resources for college students with autism, here are some of our favorite resources for you!
Autistic Self Advocacy Network
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for Autistic people. ASAN was created to serve as a national grassroots disability rights organization for the Autistic community, and does so by advocating for systems change and ensuring that the voices of Autistic people are heard in policy debates and the halls of power while working to educate communities and improve public perceptions of autism. ASAN’s members and supporters include Autistic adults and youth, cross-disability advocates, and non-autistic family members, professionals, educators and friends. Be sure to see their published resources for college students!
Autistic Women and Nonbinary Network
The mission of Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network (AWN) is to provide community, support, and resources for Autistic women, girls, nonbinary people, and all others of marginalized genders.
AWN Network is dedicated to building a supportive community where we can share our experiences in an understanding, diverse and inclusive environment. AWN is committed to recognizing and celebrating diversity and the many intersectional experiences in our community.
Foundations for Divergent Minds
Foundations for Divergent Minds is a new way to think about how we support autistic and neurodivergent people. Building on principles of the Disability Rights Movement and the Neurodiversity Paradigm, this model creates systems of accommodations and supports to enhance the quality of life of autistic and neurodivergent people. The systems are based on five areas that create a foundation for greater autonomy and increased inclusion in the home, community, and school.
