  1. Thank you for this information. I am an Academic Life Coach and at least two of my students struggle with Asbergers and I’m looking for ways to help them beyond just the time management and study strategies that I teach to all my students. For those who socialize easily, the academics are the biggest problem. That is flipped when it comes to my Asberger students and any insight into their lives is crucial for me to help them. Thanks again.

  2. Please add me to your newsletter, I am a parent of a college age student (son, age 19) who has Aspergers. He still struggles socially, and I would welcome all positive advice.
