The Challenge of Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Honors Programs
Yager, Susan
Honors in Practice, v12 p79-94 2016
Students with autism are increasingly present on college campuses, and because many young adults with autism are cognitively gifted, it follows that honors programs and colleges are obliged to be aware of this "invisible" disability and be ready to accommodate, and educate, honors students on the autism spectrum. Susan Yager describes here how two basic ideas--respect of the rights of students with disabilities and the value of course planning for a diverse group of students--have shaped her thinking about students with autism in higher education.
