College Is Possible for Students with Autism

Kerry Magro knew from day one that college wouldn't be easy.
On the first day of classes, Magro distributed cards to each of his professors letting them know he had autism.
"I pretty much had to be very vulnerable and say I have a disability," said Magro, 23, of New Jersey. "One of the big problems for an autistic individual is usually the communication and social issue. It's asking you to do something that your disability says you're going to have a problem with."
