We are excited to have developed a new resource -Helpful Hints on Transition to Tertiary Studies for student on the Autism Spectrum
The transition to University or TAFE from secondary school can be challenging for many new students, but for someone on the Autism spectrum this transition can be even more difficult. For many it soon becomes overwhelming, and too many drop out of their studies.
Helpful Hints on Transition to Tertiary Studies is a detailed, step by step guide that offers practical advice students can use to help navigate and cope with their new learning environment. It includes strategies on communication in tutorials, effective study techniques, exam preparation, and peer relationships. The resource has been funded by the Australian Government, Department of Education and Training
The resource is available at http://www.adcet.edu.au/students-with-disability/autism-transition/
