Book Review for:
The parent's Guide to College for Students on the Autism Spectrum
Jane Thierfeld Brown, EdD,
Lorraine E. Wolf, PhD,
Lisa King, MEd, and
G. Ruth Kukiela Bork, MEd
“College can be a big, scary place for a lot of young adults, but for those who are on the spectrum or have another disability, going to college can be close to impossible. Accommodations that they had in high school might not be readily available in college, not to mention the sensory, social skills, and communication issues that can pop up. With this book, however, parents can take charge and learn ahead of time how to prepare their son or daughter for these eventualities and more.
