Search tips

If you enter two or more words in the search field, the search results will include matches for any of those words.

To optimise the search results, you can use the following operators in the search field:

  • Surround a phrase with double quotes (") to search for the whole phrase.
  • Prefix a word with + if all search results must include the word.
  • Prefix a word with - if the search results must not include the word.

Examples:

  • one two
    Search for either one or two.
  • "one two"
    Search for the whole phrase "one two" rather than the individual words one or two.
  • +one two
    All search results must include one, and will rank higher if they also contain two.
  • +one -two
    All search results must include one, but none will include two.

    Viewpoints on how students with autism can best navigate university

    This research aimed to examine viewpoints on what affects the success of Australian university students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

    Despite recognition of the challenges faced by students with ASD there is limited understanding of the barriers and facilitators to participation in major life areas, such as being a university student.

    Material and Method: Q-methodology was used to describe the viewpoints of university students with ASD, their parents and their mentors, on success at university for students with ASD. A total of 57 participants completed the Q-sort.

    Results/Findings: Three viewpoints emerged; Individualised Support, Contextual Support and Social Support.

    Conclusions: This study highlighted that supports need to be individualised to the barriers and facilitators faced by Australian students with ASD. Supports also need to be contextualised to the built and social environments of universities.

    This work was supported by the Cooperative Research Centre for Living with Autism (Autism CRC)
