This podcast episode is the audio taken from our webinar, World Autism Acceptance Day - student panel.
During this podcast we heard from university students on the autism spectrum, where they answered a number of key questions, including:
What are some of the challenges students face in their studies?
What helps a student succeed in their studies?
What support or assistance does the student's university provide?
What advice would a student give to others on the autism spectrum who are considering studying at university?
The podcast is hosted by Debbie Hindle. Debbie has been coordinating the University of Tasmania's Specialist Peer Mentoring Program (Speerment) since it’s inception in 2017. She was also the Project Officer responsible for compiling the resource: How to Transition to Tertiary Education: Helpful Hints for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Debbie is appreciative that a key part of her knowledge in this area has been informed by nearly a decade of experience as a mentor to someone on the Autism Spectrum.
