Unite Students have created a report, to ensure neurodiverse students are getting the support they need, while at university.
The report had input from over 2,000 university applicants and a focus group with neurodivergent students, for key first hand experience information.
The report has highlighted key points including:
- Autistic applicants and applicants with ADHD are more likely to have a range of specific learning disabilities, including dyslexia, dyscalculia, or dyspraxia.
- Over half (52%) over respondents have experienced depression recently
- Almost two thirds (63%) of respondents have experienced anxiety in the last two years
It is great to see that Unite Students will be using the information that have gained to improve their accommodation offering for neurodivergent students. You can read the full article here.
