A recent article in The Chronicle of Higher Education discussed a program at Boston University run by Lorraine Wolf in the Disabilities office that provides additional services to college students with Asperger's or related problems. The program operates by charging these students an additional $4,500 in fees to cover the costs of the time spent by college staff. The idea is an interesting one, but very different from what we are doing in our program at Keene State College. Our program is free to both college students or others in the community with AS or HFA and is supported by a variety of grants. We even provide discrete trials training to young children with autism at no cost.
In today's MP3 audio program, I talk more about this program and include commentary by my colleague, Dr. Linda Baker, co-founder of our program and Professor of Psychology at KSC. Click on the link below to hear today's program:
