From the 2020 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (February 28, 2020)
Presented by Lynn Poth, MS, MT(ASCP)
From MLS and MLT to phlebotomy programs, students can require support to meet affective expectations during their internships. Facilitating success for all, including neurodiverse learners, while maintaining consistency in expectations and student experiences can be a challenge. This session will provide experiences from the trenches and advice from experts.


At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1.Describe current thinking about the autism spectrum and neurodiversity.
2.Correlate attributes of neurodiverse learners with potential strengths or struggles in meeting laboratory education expectations.
3.Identify strategies for working with neurodiverse learners in laboratory education.
