Teaching Students with Asperger Syndrome (and Other Disabilities) in the College Classroom: Creating an Inclusive Learning Environment
Langford-Von Glahn, Sara J.; Zakrajsek, Todd; Pletcher-Rood, Susie
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v19 n2-3 p107-133 2008
Asperger Syndrome (AS) is a developmental disorder characterized by poor social skills and restricted interests, but also by extensive knowledge in specific areas and an extensive vocabulary, thereby giving college students with AS specific abilities that are desirable in academe. In fact, young individuals with AS are often referred to as "little professors" (Luckett & Powell, 2003). The authors review the literature on adults with AS, detail adult AS characteristics, and provide suggestions for facilitating the teaching and learning of adult students with AS.
