Getting Students With Autism Through High School, To College And Beyond

Nava Silton

A program in New York City schools is focused on helping students with Autism Spectrum Disorders have the success in school necessary to go to college. The program is called ASD Nest and is a joint program between the Department of Education and the NYU Nest Support Project. The program places students who are capable of doing grade-level work in classrooms with their peers without disabilities. The program started in 2003 in response to the low enrollment of students with ASD at four-year colleges. The program has spread to 39 schools and serves more than 1000 students.
