My son does not have any universities or colleges in mind as of yet. He is a sophomore who averages B grades in honors classes, however between social challenges, comfort zones, and being easily frustrated as well as not coping with stress well I am worried how that transition may be for him so I figured if there were any colleges or universities that were exceptional at supporting students with aspergers in New England I would look into them.
Hello Maureen. I recommend checking with the local colleges and universities and see what there support services departments have available as well as your local Autism Society of America chapter to see if they know of any exceptional institutions within your community. It will also be a good idea to have him join a social - skills group for high functioning teens or to work with a therapist to begin developing coping mechanisms for when he does go to college.
