Autism and community college dual enrollment. In this interview series, Maureen Perkins talks to STS about supporting her son’s transition to college. Perkins and her son used their understanding of his autism to create and follow a college transition plan that allowed him to thrive. One way they achieved this was by taking advantage of dual enrollment opportunities. These opportunities allowed Perkins’s son to gradually transition to college. Therefore, he didn’t have to make several significant changes all at once.
