Every experience of autism is different, so capturing that diversity is an important aspect of understanding autism and how to support students with Autism Spectrum Conditions. As part of the Exeter Spectrum Programme, we want autistic students at the University of Exeter to record their experiences over the course of an academic year, so we can better understand the challenges they face, the support that is helping most, and what more could be done.
We also want to share and celebrate successes across the Higher Education sector to educate and encourage institutions to do more to support students with autism. On 31st July 2020, the University of Exeter will host the first Autism in Higher Education conference. The call for contributions is now open.
For more information, please contact us.
