Requesting Title: Realizing the College Dream with Autism or Asperger Syndrome
Author: Palmer, Ann
Published: 2006
Summary:
FROM THE PUBLISHER "This accessible book focuses on how parents can help their ASD child to get to college, and how to get the most out of it. Ann Palmer offers tried-and-tested advice on how to prepare students for the transition from home life and high school to a new environment and educational challenges, and explains how to support them through potential problems with social integration, academic pressure, self-disclosure, and appropriate levels of participation in college. Her own son's success shows that college can be a suitable option for students with an autism spectrum disorder, and a basis for a successful, independent life." This book is essential reading for any parent considering college for their child, for disability service providers in colleges, and for ASD students themselves.
