BU’s Office of Disability Services offers a program called Strategic Education Services to a range of students, including those with ASD’s. From BU’s website:

Strategic Education is individualized, practical assistance that helps students with psychiatric, attentional and developmental disabilities to achieve their goals in college.  SES services promote the skills and support necessary for students to be successful and satisfied in their educational pursuits.  SES provides individualized one-to-one weekly strategy sessions.  We work with students to facilitate access to reasonable and appropriate accommodations.  We also refer students to other resources on campus and in the community and coordinate with other Boston University offices.  When circumstances require, we can assist in facilitating leaves of absences.

During the weekly strategy sessions, we work with students to help develop better skills in the following areas:

  • time management
  • planning and organization
  • study and test taking
  • self-advocacy
  • interpersonal skills (i.e. approaching professors, resolving peer conflicts, etc.)
