This week we’re coming to you LIVE from our taping at the Thompson Center for Autism Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. Thanks so much to all of the organizers for giving us a great venue for our very first live recording of the show. Our topic was all about the transition to college for students with autism. We review some trends and possible next steps to support this population and even have a surprise special guest appearance! Plus, some thoughts recorded after the conference on positive updates in the field.
