Summary
  • "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."--Jacket
