College Central

Support for College Students

Everyone deserves a fulfilling college experience, including autistic students.  College is an exciting and challenging time for most young adults as it is their first step into adulthood and independence.  In addition to the everyday challenges, mistakes, and adventures that come with the typical college experience, many autistic students face unique challenges.
