Teens in Transition: Helping Young Adults on the Autism Spectrum Prepare for and Thrive in College
May 31 2016 at the University of Pennsylvania
Featuring a dynamic panel of experts:
Dr. Myrna Cohen, Executive Director, Weingarten Learning Resources Center at the University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Gerard Hoefling, Director, Academic Advising at Drexel University and Drexel Autism Support Program (DASP)
Colleen Finnegan, Assistant Director of Program Support, St. Joseph’s University’s Kinney Center for Autism Education & Support
This was a FREE event open to parents and professionals who learned how Penn, Drexel and St. Joe’s support their
students with autism and learning differences. We enjoyed a moderated discussion about preparing “quirky” teens for life after high school, selecting the right college, and managing that life transition.
