Campus Tour for Autistic Students

Self-guided campus tours for autistic students. If you’re wondering why taking a self-guided tour is useful, STEM grad student Patrick Dwyer has a lot of answers! This video is a longer version of an earlier video on campus tours, so if you’re looking for something a little briefer, find that here. Otherwise, tag along with Patrick as he gives us a tour of his own campus, UC Davis, and shares what students and families should be looking for. He also includes tips and advice on preparing for the college transition and college success. Thanks, Patrick!
