A bunch of guys from a Melbourn Uni (you can see the entire list here) made an amazing guide for Aspies doing tertiary study. The Autism Spectrum is such a continuum from highly Autistic to 'high functioning.' Anyone can identify with the spectrum in some way. These Melbournians have listed some great ideas.
Aspies are incredibly focused. Aspergians can keep concentrating on one thing for a long time. This is especially true if it is in our 'focused narrow interest.' I go through phases of being really fixated on a particular thing for quite a while. This is a manifestation of work ethic.
