What is special about this toolkit?
This Autism toolkit is not merely just informational, it's a toolkit to help you make the most of your time at University. It's based on the following principles:
- Less is more: We have selected and summarised, from the generic student toolkit, the most relevant information for you
- Empowerment: We list questions you may want to ask yourself to help you take control and make the most of the resources available
- Support: We give you useful tips and links to find out more about each topic
- Participatory design: This toolkit is the result of a close collaboration between researchers, professionals and undergraduate students on the Autism Spectrum
The full Autism&Uni toolkit also includes information about relevant facilities, people, services and buildings at a specific university. To find out whether your university has adopted the toolkit or to enquire about adopting it, contact email@example.com.
The links below give you useful information organised according to relevant topics. This information is useful once you've arrived, but also gives you an idea of what university life is like and what to expect.
