Working with students on the autism spectrum scenarios: We will consider a variety of contextually relevant scenarios and think of ways in which we can support students with autism in our university. We will consider a number of statements about individuals with autism and think about whether they are true or false. A discussion will follow about the reasons for different answers. The main aim of this activity will be to promote better awareness of what autism involves and how it may affect the individual and we will attempt to identify and diminish stereotypical and harmful ideas about autism.
