The Navigating College handbook is a first-of-its-kind resource written by autistic adults for autistic college students exploring the various aspects of the higher education experience. From traditional topics like classroom accommodations and dorm life to hot-button issues such as disclosure and sexuality, Navigating College provides first-person insights from current and past college students on the autism spectrum. Unlike many other resources written by parents or professionals, Navigating College is designed to be uniquely accessible and relevant to autistic people ourselves, utilizing the insight and perspectives that comes from experience. Whether you're a student on the autism spectrum yourself, a parent or family member looking to purchase a copy for an autistic relative or an educator or disability services professional, we hope you enjoy and make good use of this valuable resource.
