Topic Areas to Consider when Planning Transition from High School to Postsecondary Education for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Roberts, Kelly D.
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v25 n3 p158-162 Sep 2010
For many individuals with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attending and completing postsecondary education is a viable option. However, success in postsecondary education for these individuals may require more planning and ongoing support than students without an ASD. This article provides educators and transition support personnel with a range of topics to consider when working with students with ASD and their families to develop a comprehensive transition plan. These topic areas include career exploration, academic goal setting and preparation, assessing and knowing learning styles, self-advocacy skills, reasonable accommodations, academic supports, interagency collaboration, technology, and time management skills.
