Going to college with autism: Tips and strategies from successful voices
Going to college with autism: Tips and strategies from successful voices is 110 pages of information about autism written with college professors in mind. As more and more students with disabilities go on to higher education after high school, professors, special educators, high school transition coordinators, and families can appreciate the wisdom and success stories found in this book.
The book begins with an overview of autism, its prevalence in the population, and some of its defining characteristics. It offers professors a look into some of the behaviors they might see in a student on the spectrum as well as some of the different learning styles that can accompany the disorder. Transition planning is key for students with autism and links to agencies that can help are included. Information on developing relationships and independence for students is highlighted in addition to the importance of a student knowing what works best for them and being able to advocate for themselves. Each chapter ends with success stories offering a personal glimpse into what life is really like for students with autism.
