This is an information day for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD's) or a Non-Verbal Learning Disability (NVLD's) and their families. It is intended for students who are in grades 10, 11 or 12 and are planning to attend a post-secondary institution (university or college). The ASD Transition Day will be offered in December and April (participants will be asked to choose a session when they register).
Topics that will be discussed include:
- transition realities for students and their families
- accessing support systems
- strategies for academic success
- social life at university/college
- nurturing independence
At times, students will attend information sessions apart from their teachers and parents (or other support persons). Information about how the day will be structured and the sessions that will be offered is available from this ASD Transition Day Agenda.
Please note that registration is limited and spots will be filled on a first come, first placed basis. To register, please fill out our ASD Transition Day Registration Form. There is a registration fee of $25 for each attendee (student, teacher, parent or other support person). Payment must be made via cheque or money order.
Cheques or money orders should be made payable to York University.
