Supporting College-Bound Students
A webinar with Robin Lurie-Meyerkopf
This webinar will help professionals and parents understand the complexities in helping AS students become more independent and work toward being successful college students. Asperger's students may be very bright and academically motivated but there is much preparation involved in being successful in college. This workshop will help participants learn how to encourage independence and self-advocacy during the High School years with AS students. We will also discuss the importance of long term planning for the transition to college life..
