Marie Robinson - Specialist Mentoring AS Support
"Marie is a fantastic coach - she provides a non-judgmental space for me to work through PhD thinking"
I have over 20 years’ experience supporting a wide range of adults on the autism spectrum, and have a good understanding of the stress and anxiety which is often a part of day-to-day life for people with neurodiverse conditions - including ADHD and dyslexia.
I am a specialist mentor supporting higher education students on the autism spectrum who are in receipt of Disabled Students Allowance.
I meet that standards required by Student Finance England and Disabled Students Allowance. More information can be accessed here.
Through one to -one support, l facilitate students to develop the most appropriate studying strategies for them as an individual; enabling them to overcome barriers and reach their full academic potential. This support is in line with course requirements, learning preferences and includes:
Organisation and planning skills
Social awareness and communication skills
Coping with stress and anxiety
Motivation and goal-setting
Maintaining realistic study patterns
Dealing with challenging social situations
Managing change and difficult emotions
Having a healthy work/life balance
I regularly engage in Continued Professional Development (CPD) to stay current with research and further develop my practice in the area of autism and other neurodiverse conditions.
In additions to my degree and post graduate studies, have also acquired several certifications and taken numerous training courses in various areas related to my field.
This encompasses several National Autistic Society modules (Understanding Autism; Autism and Communication: Autism and Sensory Experience; Autism, Stress and Anxiety; Autism: Supporting families; Autism: Women & girls).
