ASERT Spotlight: Meet Khylil Robinson

Meet Khylil! Khylil is a blogger for #ASDNext and recently finished taking classes at the Community College of Philadelphia. He's agreed to share some "back-to-school" wisdom as a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).


  1.  1. When did you first learn about having ASD?
  1. I first learned about my ASD when I was 12-years-old.
  2. 2. What subjects did you excel at in school?
    I grew to like math and then just liked typing random things with my school assignments.
  3. 3. What subjects did you struggle with in school?
    I would often mess up in history because I just felt as though I couldn't easily portray anyone else's story. Yest, I was progressing in English even though that class was equally as problematic because of in-class discussions and seminars.
  4. 4. What is the best class you ever took? Why was it your favorite?
    Since I started off as a transfer in Temple University, the best I ever took there was Media Theory. I was surprised at how much information I was picking up for my major.
  5. 5. What advice do you have for students with ASD returning to school this fall?
    Yes, I may not be in high school anymore, but this advice still rings true. Some classes may not be the easiest to grasp, but don't make those the classes that you give up on. There are so many resources and areas to use, especially towards programs that are willing to accommodate your studying pattern. Always take whatever can assist you early on!
