As a result of the increased prevalence of autism, school counselors are more likely to work with this population despite very little training. Presenters will provide an overview of the literature on school counselor preparedness to serve students on the autism spectrum. In addition, presenters will offer suggestions for how school counselor training programs can infuse basic knowledge requirements, advocacy, and consultation approaches for working with this underrepresented population.
