Description

Entry to college marks the greatest transition of young adulthood; early adaptations to this new landscape are likely to affect wellbeing during the college years and beyond. Students who exhibit social differences associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder, such as limited or inflexible conversation skills, are especially vulnerable to a poor transition. The college experience of intellectually capable students with ASD is too often characterized by academic failure, conflicts with peers, loneliness, and missed opportunities to prepare for fulfilling work and relationships in adulthood. The purpose of my presentation is to describe research findings and some objective lessons from our recent efforts to assess and treat the social deficits of college students with ASD.
