For many students with autism spectrum disorders getting admitted to college is the easy part. Surviving and succeeding can be quite another, as these students transition into a system that is often unprepared to receive them. Accommodating students whose disabilities very likely fall in social and self-regulatory areas is a particular challenge for disability services providers who are not used to reaching out into so many areas of student life. Based on the authors' extensive experience, this comprehensive book offers disability services professionals practical strategies for accommodating and supporting students in all phases of college life and beyond. Major chapters address legal issues and academic accommodations; co-curricular needs and accommodations; housing and resident life; faculty issues; other partners on campus such as business and academic affairs, campus police and public safety; employment issues; working with parents, and more. Checklists, forms and other tools help guide and structure the combined efforts to help students succeed
