COLLEGE AUTISM SPECTRUM
College Autism Spectrum (CAS) is an independent organization of professionals whose purpose is to assist students with autism spectrum disorders, and their families.
We help students with ASD explore and navigate college options before, during and through the college process.
In addition, we provide campuses and professionals with the tools and training to work effectively with students on
the spectrum and to understand the challenges as well as the talents they bring.
Our team of Lisa King, M.Ed., Jane Thierfeld Brown, Ed.D and Dr. Lorraine Wolf, Ph.D. has over 75 years of combined experience in disability service provision in a variety of college environments,
including 4 year, public, private and professional institutions of higher education as well as 2 year community college and technical schools.
