ADCET in partnership with ATEND invite you to participate in a webinar, How to Transition to Tertiary Study: Helpful Hints for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Led by National Disability Coordination Officer Programme (NDCO) Project Officer, Debbie Hindle, this webinar will introduce a new, freely available resource, aimed at helping students with Autism Spectrum Disorder navigate new learning environments.

Increasing numbers of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are undertaking studies at university and TAFEs. Many of these students find these learning environments ‘unpredictable, illogical, noisy and populated with people who communicate unclearly and are unreliable’ (Beardon, Martin & Woolsey, 2009). This can present many challenges for students with ASD including those associated with understanding the new environment, managing the study requirements, communication, and seeking additional assistance

The newly developed NDCO resource, How to Transition to Tertiary Study: Helpful Hints for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, aims to increase self-determination by assisting students better understand their context, identify when and what supports could be helpful, and encouraging students to seek additional support when necessary.

For more information on the webinar, and to register, please visit the event page on the ADCET website.

Please note: Registrations are limited to the first 100 participants.
