A Different Approach for a Different Brain - Guiding Students with Asperger’s Syndrome towards Achievable Goals

This article is intended to aid Guidance counsellors working with students with Asperger’s Syndrome/ASD Level 1.  The first step is to understand the condition. One also needs to bear in mind Professor Stephen Shore’s observation in an interview with 'Merely Me' (a contributor to the Health Central website) that “once you’ve met one person with autism you’ve met one person with autism”. This article looks at the various stages and choices involved in the journey through second-level education with a view to laying the groundwork for successful participation in third-level education or work.
