Faculty Experience with College Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Qualitative Study of Challenges and Solutions
Gobbo, Ken; Shmulsky, Solvegi
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v29 n1 p13-22 Mar 2014
This article reports the findings of a qualitative inquiry involving two focus groups made up of experienced faculty who met to discuss academic concerns faced by college students with autism spectrum disorders, including Asperger's disorder. Analysis of group meeting transcripts indicated that student concerns fell into categories related to difficulties with theory of mind and understanding audience, weak central coherence in cognitive processing, and struggles with executive function. Classroom teaching implications are summarized and related strategies are presented.
