18 Mar Course for Parents of Young People with ASC Thinking of Going to Uni
We are subsidising a one-day course for parents/carers of autistic young people age 16+ who are thinking of going to Uni. The seminar will be at the Guildford institute from 9.45 for 10.00am start to 2.30pm on Tuesday 30th April.
It aims to give parents an insight into some of the difficulties people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) experience in the transition to University, what support is available, how to get it and how to navigate the process. Topics covered will include:
Things to consider when deciding whether (and which) University is a good choice
Difficulties experienced by ASC students
Sources of support at University
Disabled Students Allowance and the Assessment Process
Strategies for Managing at University

The course is being delivered by AS Mentoring www.asmentoring.co.uk, a specialist organisation working with individuals with ASC, helping them to find and retain work, and supporting those in higher education.
