Reviews

'The transition to college can be a challenge for all young people, however for those on the Autism Spectrum it can be even more complex and daunting. This book is an insightful and practical guide for professionals and young people to help prepare well and overcome any hurdles. This is a fantastic resource that I hope will be used by all colleges to ensure they are fully inclusive.'
