Understand role of Title IX in misconduct involving students with autism

Understand role of Title IX in misconduct involving students with autism As the number of students on the autism spectrum continues to rise, college campuses must increase their knowledge of this population. Conduct issues remain an area in which campuses still struggle. Most students with autism spectrum disorder will have few (if any) conduct issues, but for others, challenging behaviors can emerge on campus and in class. This is often due to inherent difficulty with communication, including processing verbal and nonverbal cues, understanding and anticipating social situations (“reading between the lines”), and identifying and extrapolating information/directions that are both implicit and explicit in nature. In class, students with ASD may ask too many questions, hold rigid or inflexible opinions, correct the professor, and/or monopolize the discussion. Elsewhere on campus, interpersonal challenges and violation of behavioral and conduct codes can arise from lack of awareness of social norms, poor social skills, and social anxiety. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Campus Legal Advisor Wiley

Abstract

As the number of students on the autism spectrum continues to rise, college campuses must increase their knowledge of this population. Conduct issues remain an area in which campuses still struggle. Most students with autism spectrum disorder will have few (if any) conduct issues, but for others, challenging behaviors can emerge on campus and in class. This is often due to inherent difficulty with communication, including processing verbal and nonverbal cues, understanding and anticipating social situations (“reading between the lines”), and identifying and extrapolating information/directions that are both implicit and explicit in nature. In class, students with ASD may ask too many questions, hold rigid or inflexible opinions, correct the professor, and/or monopolize the discussion. Elsewhere on campus, interpersonal challenges and violation of behavioral and conduct codes can arise from lack of awareness of social norms, poor social skills, and social anxiety.
