Helen Rottier, BS, PhD Candidate
Institute on Disability & Human Development, UCEDD/LEND


Illinois LEND trainee Helen Rottier completed a nationwide survey of college students who identified as disabled, autistic, neurodivergent, or mentally ill. This poster discusses results regarding students� identities and language preferences. Understanding the terms students prefer is key in creating supports and services that center the needs of autistic and neurodivergent students and in connecting with students on and across campuses.
