NAS Scotland Student Support Service
Type of service: Outreach - education
For students at both further and higher education establishments who have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The aim is to ensure that transition onto courses is smooth and that the necessary support is in place. The service then works with the student to ensure that they sustain their course choice. This involves working both with the student - providing sessions which are tailored to the needs of the individual, and with staff in the chosen place of study. Furthermore, awareness raising on ASDs is available for learning support staff, mentors, and curriculum staff as required. There are plans to provide the service Scotland-wide, and training is currently available for staff throughout Scotland.
