Description

Abstract

An increasing number of individuals with autism are entering adulthood without adequate preparation for successful transitions to college. Behavior analysts have much to offer these individuals as they prepare for life after high school. This presentation will provide an overview of skills critical for successfully navigating post-secondary education environments. The presentation will focus on how to assess and teach a variety of important skills. Outcomes of research and practice for teaching social skills and for providing supports to college students with autism will be described.
