Abstract

This research reports on the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) views of the characteristics and causes associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Students, faculty, and staff were invited to take part in an anonymous online survey via email or face-to-face interaction. Responses were scored using a 5-point correctness scale (4 points for a correct response; 0 points for an incorrect response). Of the 313 surveys completed, 86% of respondents earned greater than 28 of the 56 possible points. Demographic variables of respondent gender, age, role at the university, and college identifier accounted for notable differences in knowledge of ASD. Awareness, as well as understanding, of ASD may aid in a smother transition for college students with ASD.
