How do colleges accommodate students with autism?

I am doing a research essay on college students and autism for my English Composition 1 class and any information concerning colleges and autism combined will help a lot. For me, the information that I receive will help me to understand autism and how it will affect my brother who is a freshman in high school and has autism. Thanks for your help.

There's lots of info on this topic online. is a good website to start with.  There are some books also, which you can preview at by typing in autism college.  The Yale Child Study Center also has a lecture series about college students with autism.  There should be no loss of info for you.  Good luck!
