Abstract:
The paper presents an in-depth examination of autistic acceptance on college
campuses from the perspective of two academic scholars who are both
autistic. The inquiry first describes the history of the emergence and
growth of the neurological diversity and autistic rights movements. These
movements led to the development of a unified autistic disability culture
and community. Then the paper shares how autistic acceptance on college
campuses has received increasing attention in parallel with expanded focus
on autistic acceptance in society. It highlights major challenges impacting
autistic people attending colleges and universities, as well as potential
solutions for resolving those challenges and cultivating understanding and
support of autistic people among the broader culture of colleges and
universities.


The paper examines the emergence of autistic acceptance in society and the
growth of support for autistic people on the college campus. It is written
from the authors’ perspectives as autistic persons who pursued college
studies, and both authors are active scholars and advocates in the
cross-disability community.
