New ASD Transitions course starts soon…

The University of Nottingham ASD Transitions programme has been specifically designed to enable students to explore and discuss issues around Asperger’s  and ASD and the  transition from education into employment. The course is delivered on the principal that any job is open to any student and the presenters will work with you to ensure you understood exactly what your preferred employment might mean for you and what reasonable adjustments would enable you to have a successful fulfilling career.

The course is delivered in a small group setting which encourages discussion and learning. The course is delivered by Malcolm Johnson author of ”managing with Asperger Syndrome”  and Peter Kay from the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Career Development.

A former participant of the course said the following –

“I found the ASD transition project very helpful not only because it helped me to learn more about asperger’s and myself, but also some of the potential issues facing people with asperger’s within the workplace. It was good to be able to discuss these things not only with peers who also had asperger’s but  also with someone with asperger’s who had practical firsthand experience of the workplace, but also with a careers advisor. The structure of the course makes it easy to follow and there is plenty of time for discussion. The structure of the course also means that it is not particularly time consuming and easy to fit around your studies”.

The ASD Transitions programmes will commence on the 6th December at 1.30pm (room to be confirmed). If you would like to participate then please contact peter.kay@nottingham.ac.uk
