"We congratulate Drs Brown and Wolf and Dean Bork for compiling this
comprehensive recipe for success.
Our hope is that is will become a ubiquitous resource on the desks of faculty and support staff members in our colleges, and frequently used by clinicians and therapists who work with this population,
in this and other countries." [foreward]
Wolf, Brown, and Bork offer a framework fundamentally shifting how we think about Asperger Syndrome. By bringing us into the worlds of college-level students with Asperger Syndrome, they challenge us to think outside the box. Through concrete examples, their clear and insightful presentation teaches us that by broadening and enriching our perspectives, we can broaden and enrich the lives of students with Asperger Syndrome, thereby enabling them to contribute meaningfully to society. Isn't that what higher education is all about?
