Description

How can we balance the see-saw of Autistic inequality in Higher Education?

Universities can sometimes exclude Autistic students from getting the most out of their experience. As one of the only Autistic Higher Education mentors for Autistic students in the UK, Jorik Mol seeks to improve the experience of Neurodivergent students by encouraging universities to listen to them.

Drawing from his own lived experience, and using interviews from his own mentees, Mol offers guidance on how to best support students, emphasising the need to teach radical empathy, values-driven motivation, and self-advocacy.

Exploring topics including community, boundaries, and burn-out, while pushing hard against the status quo, this book is ideal reading for students of Education, Disability Studies, Sociology, Psychology, and Queer and LGBT+ Studies, as well as education practitioners and policy makers.
