Directory of Autism Programs in College

Spectrum teens graduating from high school have more educational options than ever before. Top College Consultants can help by assessing students’ college readiness, and finding the best-fit programs and supports. Below you will find an extensive list of “autism-friendly colleges,” including:

  • Spectrum support programs in 4-year colleges.
  • Colleges designed exclusively for students with learning differences (including autism).
  • Support programs for college students with learning differences. These academic/learning support programs often emphasize time management and study skills, and can help students with a variety of diagnoses (including autism and ADHD). However, some students on the spectrum benefit even more from autism support programs which also have social groups or social skills coaching.
  • A small sample of non-degree certificate programs for students with intellectual/developmental disabilities. There are many more such programs listed at Think College.
