Autism Friendly Transition to HEI

As part of our Autism Friendly University programme, AsIAm has set up a portal for all HEI students to access. The purpose of The Autistic Guide to Starting College website is to support students in their transition to higher education after post-primary school.

The website, created with Rethink Ireland, will answer questions about this transition through a number of resources. These include informational articles outlining the basics of starting college, video resources where autistic students share their own experiences and practical resources like cooking instructions.

Through this portal, we hope to create a community of autism friendly Higher Education Institutes, sharing knowledge and resources on how to best meet the needs to autistic students.
