Campus Connections is a program designed for college bound students. It is a program specifically designed for students with Asperger’s or High Function Autism that plan on attending a school of higher education. The program will take students and parents through the process of researching and locating the school that will best support the needs of that student. The initial part of the program will take the student through the college search, the application process, and the acceptance. The second phase of the program will explore life on a college campus and how to navigate through school from issues like the bookstore, communal bathrooms and crazy roommates to asking for academic supports, developing a social like and if and when to disclose their disability.
