Abstract

Based on many years working with university students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), this book provides educators and support staff with practical strategies for addressing the challenges associated with ASD as they manifest in college and university environments. It explores common issues such as: * discipline matches and mismatches *interpreting expectations and codes of conduct * understanding and completing assignment tasks * rigidity of thinking * project planning * self-monitoring * multi-tasking and central coherence. Case studies of individual students provide real-world examples of possible issues and successful interventions, making this an essential resource for all those involved in supporting students with ASD in tertiary education settings.
