Neurodiversity at La Trobe
Our new neurodiversity project aims to improve accessibility for our neurodiverse student and staff community.
Our first Project Officer, Neurodiversity, Beth Radulski is also our first Autistic Autism researcher. This portfolio draws upon both research and lived experience to improve both the overall university experience for neurodiverse staff and student populations.
In collaboration with the Student Success team, the Neurodiversity portfolio is involved in various initiatives with these goals in mind. These range from campus event planning, to training both academic and support staff in issues relating to neurodiversity. Advocating for this cohort in various areas of interest across the university (including policy, study and employment services and beyond), and fostering a greater sense of community amongst the neurodiverse staff and student cohort.
Similarly, this website serves as a central hub of La Trobe specific information for students with minority Neurotypes (Autism, ADHD, dyslexia, etc.). Here you can find resources including targeted support with your studies, links to relevant services such as counselling, research projects related to Neurodiversity, and related blogs, articles, and other materials which can help you navigate university life.
