The ASC is offering a half-day information session for prospective students with Autism Spectrum Disorder who have applied to, or are considering attending Durham College. This event is designed to help ease the transition for students from their current secondary school supports and introduce them to the numerous services that are available at the ASC and across our campus. The differences between secondary school and post-secondary school will also be highlighted, as students have a chance to listen to our student panel who will share their personal experiences from their own college journey.
- Students with an ASD exceptionality in grade 12 or who have completed high school and their guest. Please note that due to limited seating capacity pre-registration is required for this event.
