Autistic Spectrum Conditions

Front of campus

The needs of students with autistic spectrum disorders will vary with each individual. Some students have particular difficulties adjusting to change, especially when it occurs without notice. Some students may have difficulties with social situations or staying focused in lectures or on their studies. Funding for support is through DSA or the Access to Work Scheme. You may find the following support helpful:

  • Arrangements to come in and meet the Inclusion Co-ordinator (Disability) and your programme leader before the start of your course.
  • A buddy during freshers’ week or at the start of term to help you find your way around etc.
  • A specialist mentor to help with organising and planning assignments and keeping on task (subject to DSA funding)
  • A Dictaphone to record lectures so that you can listen to them again.
  • Being put in touch with other students on the Autistic Spectrum.
