WTCS Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Guide

The Wisconsin Technical Colleges (WTCS) Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Guide was developed through a two-year effort by a workgroup consisting of disability services representatives from technical colleges, the Autism Society of WI, and the WTCS Office. The staff from the WI Dept. of Public Instruction provided additional expertise and assistance in developing the guide. The guide was developed to provide disability support providers, university staff, and faculty with useful tools and strategies in working with college students on the autism spectrum. The guide provides information on the following topics:

  • Transition planning and admissions from high school to postsecondary education setting
  • Accommodations and strategies for students with ASD
  • Transition to employment and community

WTCS provides permission to share, make copies, and utilize all or part of the guide to assist serving students with ASD.
