Stepped Transition in Education Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

How do we make the transition to college successful for learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

We are conducting a survey on the challenges and strengths of young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) related to transition out of high-school and into higher education. We are conducting this study to inform development of a new transition support program.

Participation involves completion of a brief, anonymous online survey. We are enrolling three groups of participants: (1) young people with ASD (between 16 and 25 years of age), including high-school students (who are at least 16 years old), college students (either 2-year or 4-year college), (2) parents of children/adults with ASD (who are between 16 and 25 years of age); and (3) professionals working with students with disabilities, especially high-school students and undergraduate students with ASD. Participants receive a $10.00 gift card for their time upon completion of the survey (the survey takes about 40 minutes).

If you would like to complete the survey, please send an email to
