I want to use this Tuesday Tip to promote an event organized by the WellCat Counseling Center.
The center will be offering a free faculty and staff training to learn how to serve students who are on the Autism Spectrum and improve their college experience.
The training will be held via Zoom, on March 24, from 9:00 am-11:00 am. Please register here if you plan to attend. More information is available in the attached document.
I also want to take this opportunity to share a couple of resources available in Faculty Development to support neurodivergent students:
- You can listen to an episode of the Rise Teach Learn podcast that focuses on Neurodiversity in Higher Education to learn about information and data about neurodiversity in academia, but especially at Chico State
- You can access the corresponding Teaching Guide on Neurodiversity in Higher Education to learn about practices to adopt in your classes to make neurodivergent students feel more comfortable, including communication tips.
We hope you’ll find these resources useful!
