Abstract

More and more students with Asperger’s syndrome are being accepted into college without having the proper foundation in place to successfully graduate with a bachelor’s degree. Those students need support systems to properly prepare them to face challenges of college. The purpose of this project is to discuss the current research in regards to effective learning strategies that lead to success (graduating from college) for college students with Asperger’s syndrome and further discuss how to implement these learning strategies in higher education institutions. This year, a single-case study will be conducted which will involve a college student with Asperger’s syndrome. The study will identify what learning strategies are the most effective for him or her, and what barriers could be standing in the way of his or her success.
