UMO has a decade of experience of supporting students through specialist mentoring for students with autism or neurodiverse conditions. Our experienced Specialist Mentors have a detailed understanding of the needs of Autism and Neorodiverse students at university, helping to guide, develop and recognise their abilities so they achieve their potential at university.
The UMO Mentor supports the student to make the transition to university, obtaining a sense of belonging within the university environment, develop skills to help with social interaction, understand the norms of university life, access services and learn to advocate for themselves.
In identifying these barriers the UMO Mentor works with the student to implement strategies that allows them to better manage their emotional state and wellbeing, separate out experiences that are personal rather than specific to their institution, improve time and workload management, and overall improve the university academic and social experience.
