Developing College Skills in Students With Autism and Asperger's Syndrome 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. This book provides invaluable ideas and suggestions for parents, high school teachers, special educators, educational psychologists and other professionals supporting college students on the spectrum.

Dr. Sarita Freedman is a licensed psychologist and maintains a private practice in Calabasas, California. Dr. Freedman has over 30 years' experience working with children, adults, and families, in both educational and clinical settings. She has published articles in autism-related magazines and presented on many aspects of autism spectrum disorders at conferences. Formerly, Dr. Freedman co-founded the Child Development Institute where she was Director of Special Needs Programs. She was responsible for designing training programs for undergraduate and graduate students interested in working with children on the spectrum, and overseeing their progress in individual and group supervision. Dr. Freedman is the founder of College on the Spectrum, devoted to helping students with autism and Asperger's syndrome succeed in college and in life.
