Study skills and Mentoring for ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) and ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) supports students with both their academic studies and social development whilst at school, college or university.
Students will work with a mentor on a 1:1 basis, weekly for an hour outside of class time. The support is tailored to each student’s needs and existing strengths and we will often address sensory issues, social and communication skills, as well as dealing with stress and anxiety.
Support generally given in Mentoring sessions includes (but is not limited to):
- Organisation and time management work
- Breaking down assignments
- Overcoming anxiety
- Developing communication skills
- Managing change
- Structuring workload
- Understanding the expectations of the course
