CIT DSS Transitions Programme

 

 

The CIT DSS Transitions Programme is a PATH funded initiative and part of the SOAR Project which is an inter-institutional collaboration on
access. We are currently in the second year of the pilot project.

CIT DSS has a part-time Transitions Programme Coordinator who provides support for students who identify as being on the Autism Spectrum.  This programme offers support at a pre-entry, entry and post-entry level.  It provides support, guidance and the opportunity for reflection for students as they begin the process of moving to a new educational environment.

Support for CIT students

The Transitions Support Programme offers mentoring/coaching support for new DSS students as they make the transition into college, specifically for students who identify as being on the autism spectrum.

  • New students can access transitions support during their first year in college.
  • The Transitions Programme Coordinator, Julie O’Donovan, will provide guidance, support and collaboration on the expectations of this new learning environment. Students may find this transition challenging and are offered the opportunity to engage with Julie to work together on accessing their educational goals.
  • This could include getting to know your campus, engaging with your lecturers, how to effectively use your needs assessment, understanding how college works, and building communications skills.
  • Transition activities will also run throughout the academic year.
