My son was diagnosed with "mild autism" at age 3.

I came across this by accident when I was looking for something else.

I'm hoping that by the time my son is ready for college, all universties will have this kind of program for ASD students.

I'm a university professor with a few students who are on the spectrum, and I've thought about this a lot with regards to my students and what I am planning for my son (currently 12).

I have a 16yo dd with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) who is a junior in high school, so we've been thinking and talking about college quite a bit.
