Education, Transition to Adulthood, Access to Services
National Longitudinal Transition Study 2 (NLTS-2)
About 1 in 3 youth with autism will attend college soon after high school, and the most common place for attendance was 2-year college. Of those who attended 2-year college, less than half accessed help, accommodations, or services to support their education.
Two-year college is a frequent stepping stone to employment or further education. Learn about 2-year college attendance rates and what supports students with autism receive during 2-year college.
