The Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre, La Trobe University, has developed an online resource for ASD students, parents, and tertiary staff. The website development was part of a larger project which aims to support tertiary students diagnosed with ASD.
Here’s the link: http://www.latrobe.edu.au/otarc/info/support
Briefly, each section contains the following information:
• Students: transition and orientation, disclosure, what to expect at university and TAFE, learning at university and TAFE.
• Staff: what is ASD, suggestions for supporting ASD students, disability support services.
• Parents: transition to tertiary education, my child’s rights, disclosure, supporting my child’s tertiary education.
Lists of additional resources are also provided for students, staff, and parents.
The content of the webpages is not specific to La Trobe University.
We hope to get feedback on the website to improve it. If you have some spare time, please help us complete this 5 minute survey: http://latrobepsy.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6tHB8j7WvwZeXg8
