Our university outreach service in Wales provides support to students with Asperger syndrome throughout the academic year. Staff are flexible but provide support in these key areas:
- study skills support
- social skills development
- independent living skills
- liaison with tutors and lecturers
- planning and problem solving.
Our staff work with universities to raise awareness of Asperger syndrome and the autism spectrum, and the challenges that people on the spectrum can face in higher education. The support we provide is both person-centred and discreet.
How to access our support
Our student support service is usually funded by Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), although other funding streams may also be accepted. Funding must be in place before we can offer our service, so contact the disability adviser at your place of study for help with applications for funding.
