Successful strategies and advice for those preparing someone for and supporting them through college life

Providing expert yet accessible guidance to parents of young autistic people who are going to college, this book helps parents support their child from application through to graduation.

Covering social issues, independent living, academic challenges, student services and emotional wellbeing, this is the one-stop shop for advice on the transition from school to college or university. The book examines the skills that students need to live and function at college, and the skills parents need to let their teens navigate college without a parent as intermediary. It offers ways to combat common problems that affect the mental health of people on the spectrum, such as keeping up with homework, fast-paced classes, and complex social expectations.

This book is for any parent considering college as an option for their child, disability service providers in colleges and for autistic students themselves.

 

Advice for parents helping a child on the autism spectrum prepare for and attend college. Covers everything from academic trials, social links and independent living through to mental health, sensory issues and student services, this book provides skills for parent and child to allow teens to navigate the complex world of college independently.
