Neurodiversity: The Transition to Further & Higher Education
Friday, 25 March 2022
10:00 - 11:30 GMT
About the event
How is higher and further education different for neurodivergent students?
Some students may have a diagnosis before starting further education or have received support from parents and teachers. Other students may enter further education without a diagnosis and life may become more challenging and less structured.
When students transition to university, there are often unclear pathways for guidance and there can be lots of change. So how can parents, educators and college professionals make this transition a success?
Join us for an exciting panel discussion where we will explore:
How to involve students in their own transition planning
Parent and family involvement in transition planning
Adjustments to assessments and coursework
How can academic staff know how to support the growing population of students
Pathways to providing adjustments and support
Develop understanding and relevant knowledge and skills within the university community
Establish channels so that neurodiverse students can have a voice in various aspects of university life
This is a free online event via Zoom.
