Due to university restrictions on large events, we are postponing our Autism and the College Experience events until fall 2020.

Learning Assistance Center & Disability Services is excited to welcome Dr. Jane Thierfeld Brown from Yale University and Dr. Lorraine Wolf from Boston University to Wake Forest University to host a series of community and campus conversations about Autism and the college experience.

 Dr. Thierfeld  Brown and Dr. Wolf are part of the College Autism Spectrum, an independent organization of professionals whose work and research focus on the needs of college students with autism.
