It's presumed that if a student achieves a diploma he/she is "set." But students with "invisible" differences such as Asperger Syndrome are fighting this bias. Students are "shortchanged" (Carley) without intensive training in self advocacy, self-awareness, and activities of daily living. In this training, participants will learn about these missing pieces, strategies, and resources for instruction as well as learning how not having these pieces is resulting in poor outcomes in adults outcomes founded upon shame and disappointment in self.
