Top Tips for Asperger Students

How to Get the Most Out of University and College

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Leaving home and moving to college or university can be a daunting
experience. In this easy-to-use book, Rosemary Martin provides
guidelines and invaluable advice for every student on the Autism
Spectrum as he or she thinks about, and plans for, entry into student
life.

Packed with tried and tested methods for coping and succeeding away
from home that cover every aspect of student life, this book focuses on
the particular needs of people with AS: from how to get up on time for
lectures, to the art of living with other people and attending to the
basics of personal hygiene, and encourages everyone to make the most of
student life in a style that suits them. Handy hints and tips reassure
the reader that going to college is a big deal for every student,
regardless of whether or not they are on the autism spectrum.

This friendly and useful book is an absolute must for any student on
the spectrum about to begin a university or college degree.
