Understanding Asperger's Syndrome: A College Professor's Guide

Educating college professors about being a college student living on the autism spectrum can be a challenging experience, particularly when most colleges and universities rely on a "self-advocacy" model of support. This model typically requires students to independently seek out college faculty and staff who could benefit from the information about the syndrome, or who might be in a position to provide some assistance.
