Asperger's at the College Level

Monday, October 22, 2012

12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

David Dubinsky Student Center, Room A803

This is an interactive event for students and faculty. Mitch Nagler, director of the Bridges to Adelphi Program at Adelphi University, will discuss what Asperger syndrome is, what the college experience is like for students with Aspergerís, and what this means for their classroom instructors. Mr. Naglerís presentation includes actual case studies that highlight symptoms and behaviors representing common issues for students on the spectrum, and a discussion on how to resolve these issues in the classroom.

Mr. Nagler, MA, LMHC, is the assistant director of the Student Counseling Center at Adelphi, in addition to leading the Bridges to Adelphi Program. The program provides comprehensive support services to Adelphi students diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS), or other similar non-verbal learning disorders. Mr. Nagler also maintains private practice offices at Spectrum Services in NYC, and in Merrick, NY, where he specializes in treating young adults diagnosed with AS.
