Together with the Academic Collaborative Centre for Autism and with the support of the King Baudouin Foundation and Ghent University, SIHO launched the online guidance tool Roadmap. Roadmap is an online, interactive and personalizable guidance tool that supports students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) within higher education. Roadmap provides easy access to reminders, notes and customizable signposts with coping strategies on topics related to life and learning as a student within higher education. With a useful logbook in which energy and stress levels and daily experiences can easily be recorded on the one hand and a clear planning agenda on the other hand, students are fully supported with the organizing and the following up of their learning and student activities.
Roadmap can be used separately from or in combination with other methods of guidance. Students can map out their own support team and can easily contact their mentor when and where it should be needed. The personalization of the tool ensures that the content that is offered, can be fully tailored to the unique needs of each student.
SIHO launched its application Roadmap at the international conference 'Enhancing student experience: innovative support tools for students with disabilities', on the 12th of September 2019 in Brussels.
