Main information

Type of service: Outreach - education

The National Autistic Society Student Support Service provides Specialist Mentoring, 1:1 Study Skills, and Study Assistance (in-class) support for autistic students at universities and colleges across Scotland. This service is funded by the Disabled Student Allowance.

Type of service: Outreach – Education

Our Specialist Student Mentors are highly skilled and experienced in providing autism specific support to students in further and higher education. We adopt a person-centred approach and support is tailored to each individual student based on their particular needs and preferences.
Specialist Mentors support students with a wide range of issues as they understand that students are affected by social and emotional concerns, as well as academic matters, throughout the course of their studies. Mentors work with students to identify areas in which support is required and adapt their approach to suit the needs of each student. 

We also offer in-class support for students who require a Study Assistant when they attend college or university, and many of our mentors are qualified to deliver 1:1 Study Skills support.
