The Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) is an educational organisation that is funded by the Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment.  

ADCET’s mission is to contribute to the improvement of the educational experiences and to the successful outcomes for students with disability in post-secondary education.

They have published a helpful booklet (in short and long versions) called How to Transition to Tertiary Education: Helpful Hints for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This booklet provides helpful hints and strategies.
