Autism study group
Do you have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and run into problems studying? Every Thursday afternoon from 15-17 hrs. you can come to A2 (ground floor Academia building), where you can study under expert guidance. We work during these meetings with blocks of 45 minutes of studying alternating with 15-minute breaks. You will also have the opportunity here to meet other students with ASD and share experiences.
Studying probably feels like a lot to you as a student at times. As a result, you may lose track of the course material and end up falling behind on your schedule, procrastinating or maybe even not doing it at all.
The tutoring sessions offer the opportunity to study, with proximity to a tutor, on a regular basis. You do this in a small group consisting of students with (characteristics) of ASD, who encounter similar difficulties as you. There is room to individually explore study load and learning styles. During the first hour, an expert supervisor will be around for questions. The second hour will be for individual study and for meeting your fellow students.
The purpose of the meeting is to experience structure, regularity and overview in your study work. It also gives you the opportunity to connect with other students and share each other's experiences.
The study group is open to students of Tilburg University and is supervised by Jados, an organization that supports and guides students with ASD. If necessary, Jados can refer to other counselors and caregivers.
Registration is not necessary.
Participation is free of charge.
