Abstract

With a significant increase in the number of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), there is a need for higher education professionals on campuses to better understand the challenges facing this population. This article presents literature on the topic of college students with ASD that will better equip those working with students on campus. Challenges faced by those transitioning to college with ASD and implications for those working in orientation, transition, and other support areas within institutions of higher education are discussed. Suggestions for improving success, retention and thriving for this population are presented.
