“Dramatic rise in number of college-bound kids with autism”

In the past decade, academic administrators have noticed an increase in the number of kids with autism going to college. In recent years, a larger number of children have been diagnosed with high-functioning autism, or Asperger’s syndrome. As a result, these children and their parents could access additional supports, if needed. With that generation aging out of high school, we can expect to see more people with autism in college.

‘Fox 8: Cleveland’ recently released a video about the experiences of Nicholas Piazza, a student at Kent State University.
