Researchers And Students on Neurodiversity (ReASoN)

Mental health problems are common in neurodiverse young people.

Transition to higher education can be challenging, however little is known about the experience of neurodiverse students in the UK.

We aim to establish a network of neurodiverse students and researchers to collaboratively set the emerging research agenda.

The group is co-ordinated by academics at the Universities of Bristol and Exeter, with links to third-sector colleagues via the Embracing Complexity coalition.
