At ACU we understand that university studies can be challenging. You’re asked to manage your enrolment, orientation, lectures, tutorials, assignments, exams and navigate your campus, as well as make new friends. We also know that for students on the autism spectrum these challenges can become barriers to accessing higher education.
That’s why we’ve collaborated with autistic students and staff from ACU and other universities to develop initiatives that support all our autistic students, and help ease their transition into the higher education environment.
We recognise that there are lots of debates about language and approaches, and that every person with autism is an individual, with different strengths and challenges. We encourage students to use the language they feel comfortable with, and to use (or not use) different aspects of support, depending on their individual interests and needs.
