    Check out Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts. They provide a lot of support for students with various challenges.

    Lars Perner is a college professor at USC Marshall who has Asperger’s; he also has a list of schools on his website that may be suitable for students with Asperger’s:

    College Planning for the High Functioning Student With Autism

    Many students with Asperger’s frequently have other learning challenges which can also be met at colleges that provide more structured LD services and accommodations that may be suited to their specific needs (for instance, mentors or staff who meet regularly with students and can provide organizational or administrative kinds of assistance besides academic assistance), so you might also look for schools known to have good LD services in addition to programs specifically designed for students with Asperger’s, Many students with Asperger’s also do well by starting out at community colleges where they can continue to live at home and receive family support during their initial transition to college.

    There are also a few independent living programs for students with Asperger’s that partner with nearby colleges, which might be another option for some students, such as Aheadd (which has a few locations but originally served students attending Case Western); College Internship Program and College Living Experience.
