NeuroDiversity Hub

UniSA is proud to announce that we have joined forces with a network of specialist organisations to create South Australia's first Neurodiversity Hub (NDH) - a national initiative that aims to support neurodiverse students to successfully navigate university life and create pathways to graduate employment opportunities.

Neurodiversity refers to the way a person thinks, communicates or behaves that may be different or challenging to the general population. Many neurodiverse individuals have talents that we don't recognise because we tend to focus on the differences instead of looking at ways to unlock and support the potential within.

UniSA's Neurodiversity Hub (NDH) is not a physical place - it is a combination of initiatives, programs and tools that together create a safer, more supportive and adaptive study environment in which neurodiverse students can thrive.  Our NDH will initially focus on students who are on the Autism Spectrum, with plans to expand supports to other neurodiverse groups as the project evolves.

For more information, refer to the Neurodiversity Hub concept website.

PLEASE NOTE: This webpage is currently under construction - further details about UniSA's Neurodiversity Hub will be posted shortly.  In the meantime, all queries relating to UniSA's hub can be directed via email to the Manager - Access & Inclusion, at inclusion@unisa.edu.au
