Reviews

"For higher education practitioners seeking to serve autistic college students more inclusively on their campuses, this book clearly walks through considerations that should be on their minds and features countless resources that they can implement. Kuder, Accardo, and Woodruff also leave readers eager to explore an emergent base of research studies on autism in higher education."Brett Ranon NachmanDirector of Research at College Autism Network; Postdoctoral Research Scholar at NC State University“College Success for Students on the Autism Spectrum stands alone as the resource for the field of higher education when it comes to supporting autistic students. Until now, postsecondary educators and student affairs professionals were left without a comprehensive guidebook to understand and serve autistic students. Without question, this long-awaited text will equip those who work in colleges and universities to include, engage, and graduate students on the spectrum.”Edlyn Vallejo PeñaProfessor of Higher Education Leadership and Director of the Autism and Communication Center
