Are you a teen or parent/guardian of a teen who is considering college and wondering…..
  • What are the best and most challenging parts of college for someone on the autism spectrum?
  • Should I write about my diagnosis in my college essay?
  • What type of college environment will work for me?
  • Should I live at home or away?
  • Should I ask for a single room if I live away?
  • How can I make friends at college?
  • How will I have time for everything I like to do AND do everything I have to do?

There will be a link to a packet of college information sent after the seminar, and plenty of time to ask questions.
