These are colleges with identified programs for students with Asperger's Syndrome. Asperger's Syndrome is a term used for students who may have difficulty adjusting to social situations, picking up social cues, and making transitions. Marcia Rubinstien, an educational consultant in Hartford, Connecticut, chose these colleges on the basis of factors such as acceptance of social and learning style differences, a good support system in residence life and academic affairs, easy access to disability support, and trained faculty and staff. Such characteristics might be appropriate for a wide range of students. And for even more suggestions, check out our list of Colleges for Students with Asperger's: The Friendly Ones.
