    The development of good practice principles for supporting students with autism to work with their peers - UK

    This article outlines the undertaking of a research project which looked at how students with autism can be better supported to work with their peers. The aim of the research was to examine the experience of students on the autism spectrum in higher education in undertaking group work. A review of existing best practice guidance along with feedback from students themselves was used to develop a set of draft good practice principles which a smaller group of students then had a further opportunity to give feedback. A set of good practice principles was then finalised for dissemination to academic staff and autism practitioners. The message was that to support all learners, the advice contained within the good practice principles should be adopted wholesale as a principle of universal design for learning (UDL). (Sharron Sturgess, Study Adviser for Autism and Asperger syndrome University of Leicester UK. 2020)
