Program Helps Transition to College Living

SCOTSDALE, Ariz. -- A new summer program for young people with Asperger's syndrome and high-functioning autism will prepare them for the social intricacies of college.
The Scottsdale-based Spectrum College Transition Program helps people who have developmental disorders navigate college life during the academic year. Typically, Spectrum offers additional academics during the summer.
But O. Robin Sweet, co-founder of Spectrum, said she discovered that her clients don't really need the academic help.
"Our students excel academically," she said.
"Their issue is the social component."
