Post-Secondary Education and Autism

The term post-secondary education refers to any intervention which is aimed at adolescents and adults and which is delivered in a further or higher education setting (such as a college or university).

There is a wide range of post-secondary education interventions for students on the autism spectrum including mentoring programmes, social skills groups and support groups.

There is a considerable overlap between some of these interventions. For example, some mentoring programmes may include the use of social skills groups. 

There is a also considerable overlap between some forms of post-secondary education and other types of intervention, especially Behavioural and Developmental Interventions, and many forms of post-secondary education use one or more behavioural or developmental techniques.
