College students hold event to raise autism awareness – Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald

The Inclusive Learning team at Ayrshire College has been raising awareness of autism to its students and staff members.

And the events included an Easter Treasure Hunt at their Kilwinning Campus, with all proceeds raised going to Scottish Autism.

A workshop was recently available for staff that outlined some of the challenges that students with an Autism Spectrum Disorder experience at college, and suggested possible support strategies that could be put in place.

Autism Network Scotland delivered the workshop in conjunction with One Stop Shop, as part of World Autism Awareness Week.

Various other organisations such as Project SEARCH, Skills Development Scotland and Partners for Inclusion, also came into the College to promote the support they can offer to students with autism.

Virtual reality demonstrations used an app to suggest what it is like to live with autism.

Pledge boards were also on each campus for students to sign, promising to be understanding towards every student.

Students were also invited to take part in the Easter Treasure Hunt in Kilwinning, organised by Routes to Careers: Retail and Routes to Careers: IT, with all proceeds going to Scottish Autism.

Meanwhile, NC Social Sciences students will soon be climbing Ben Nevis for charity.
