I've forgotten who was looking for info on colleges for kids with Asperger's, so I thought I'd post some info here. Widener College, in PA, Lynn College in Fla, and Leslie College in Boston have good programs/resources for Aspergers kids. I may have some more info elsewhere. I will post it whe I put my fingers on it.

    Here's a little more info I posted elsewhere:
    "There is a private program called The College Living Experience, Inc. in Fort Lauderdale. They specialize in giving young people with learning problems and milder PDD-spectrum disorders the support they need (e.g., intensive tutoring, life skills training, social skills, computer training, and more) to get through college or vocational training...The program has close ties with local colleges and technical and vocational schools, including Broward Community College, which can help greatly when academic or other problems arise."
