College Autism Spectrum (CAS) is an independent organization of professionals whose purpose is to assist students with autism spectrum disorders, and their families. We specialize in COLLEGE COUNSELING (helping students find the right college) and WORK READINESS (skill building for interviews, jobs and work skills).
We help students with ASD explore and navigate college options before, during and through the college process. Additionally, 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.

Services for Students:
Students with autism spectrum disorders often have no trouble meeting the entrance criteria to the college of their choice, yet once there, have extreme difficulty navigating the academic and social complexities inherent in the college experience.
Services for Parents: Students with ASD often have unique needs for support in areas that colleges are not mandated to provide. In depth understanding of a student's strengths and challenges and an institution's ability to support them is essential in facilitating a successful experience.
Services for Professionals:
The increasing numbers of students on the autism spectrum entering post-secondary education present higher education institutions with challenges previously not at issue.
Services for Schools & Agencies:
Transitioning from high school to the postsecondary world is difficult for all students. This is more prevalent for students with ASD, because the deficits of the condition may not be fully realized or addressed in the secondary environment.
Summer Programs for Students:
Special Summer programs for students and/or family dealing with autism spectrum disorder.
College Programs for Students:
Many post-secondary institutions around the country offer training and certification programs as well as individualized and group support services.
