Colleges are enrolling more students on the autism spectrum. However, one-third of the graduates with autism are not finding jobs. Here is how Rochester Institute of Technology is trying to change that with their Career Ready Bootcamp.
Once a student has heard back from all their college applications, they have the opportunity to visit or revisit their top choices of the schools where they have been offered admission. Most colleges offer Accepted Students’ Days in April for students and their families. This allows students to get a more in depth look at their potential college, see other students who were accepted, speak to faculty from their major, and even speak to the financial aid office.
Sometimes students will have the opportunity to sit in on classes to see what college academics would be like. Usually there is lunch offered along with student Q&A panels and some sort of entertainment from student clubs. The days are usually very upbeat and celebratory and well worth attending. Before a final decision is made for the student’s next 4 years, College Docs suggests you attend two or three Accepted Students’ Days.
