Going to college can be a daunting prospect for any young person, but teenagers on the autism spectrum this is especially true. Developing College Skills in Students with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome describes the unique needs that ASD students entering further or higher education are likely to have, and identifies the skill sets they will need to develop in order to be successful in college and in life. Sarita Freedman outlines the skills required for success in further and higher education in relation to the strengths and weaknesses of individuals with high functioning ASDs, and explains how the weaknesses can be ameliorated to enable success at college. Describing the unique accommodations and support that students with ASD need, she provides effective intervention strategies that can be implemented throughout the student's development. Also included are classroom and teaching strategies, and ideas for making system-wide changes so that future students with ASD can be better prepared for their adult lives.
