Individual support sessions

We can work with students to create individual support plans. These plans can include:

  • travel and orientation
  • coping with change
  • presentation skills
  • managing relationships
  • timetabling and structure
  • developing independent learning skills

The plans are flexible and can be adapted at stressful times – such as when changes are made to timetables or in exam periods.

Day-to-day support

We can also provide more intensive outreach support. Some students only require this type of support during the first few weeks of their course or during residential trips, while others require it for the duration of their studies.

In addition to supporting students, we work to raise awareness and understanding of autism amongst fellow students and college/university staff.

Our student support service is usually funded by Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), although other funding streams may also be accepted. Funding must be in place before we can offer our service, so contact the disability adviser at your place of study for help with applications for funding. You can also apply for this funding by going to the Student Awards Agency Scotland website.
