about this item
The main objective of this book is to assist young individuals with Asperger’s and Autism to overcome the big leap from high school to life outside of public education. The time right after high school can be very a frightening experience. What a person decides from this point on ultimately affects the rest of his or her life. This book is not intended to tell the reader what to do with his/her life. Rather, its focus is on helping them transition, prepare, and hopefully succeed in whichever their future endeavors may prove to be, primarily higher education and work.The book itself will analyze three important points. The first one covers higher education and university colleges. The book will go into detail on the steps in enrolling for a school, campus life, teachers, school surroundings, study tips, disability services, and more. The next point will explore the workforce and how an individual with Autism can prepare for employment. This section will include: resume building, job interview tips, commuting, managing money, and networking. The final point will go over basic tips on traveling abroad, like how to pack, choosing an airline, what to bring, how to behave and dress in a foreign country, and so on. The book will be split up in a series of chapters that is appropriate for the reader.
