More public schools are creating programs to prepare students who have autism for life after high school. In addition, a national initiative called Think College is aimed at supporting students with autism in colleges and universities in Vermont and other states. "The level of support and knowledge of different disabilities has dramatically improved," said John Spinney of the Vermont Department of Education. "There is more support for college students with disabilities. It is becoming more common place and people need to get their heads around it."
