The following toolkits were designed by Leeds Beckett University who undertook extensive research on students with autism in HE institutions:

They have published the outcomes of their research on an informative website:

http://www.autism-uni.org/

They have also developed an online toolkit for students to help young autistic people during their transition from secondary education into higher education.  Many universities have adopted the toolkit for their own students and this link provides more information on what it includes and how UH could potentially adopt it:

There are three booklets of sector-specific guidance which outline best practice in supporting students with autism in HE explained here (NOTE: access to the booklets via this link this will require you to provide sign-up details):
