TITLE IX’S UGLY Track Record with Autism. Weaponizing TitleIX Against Autistic Students

Asking a student with a communication disorder to interpret subtle, or even not-so-subtle, signals is akin to expecting a student with a visual impairment to read a “No Entry” sign on a door and then faulting the student for walking through it, or holding a hearing-impaired student accountable for not exiting a building during a fire drill that involves only an audible fire alarm…Colleges are already using Title IX investigators and hearing officers without experience in student conduct, but they run into legal problems when these officials shirk their Americans with Disabilities Act.  It’s a devastating nightmarish train wreck when Title IX warriors, blinded by their Manichean vision of helpless victims and toxic masculinity, set their sights on autistic students.
