Everyday autism: bridging the gap between lab and life

Project: Other

Description

Autism science has benefited from a significant increase in public investment in recent years, with dramatic impact on scholarly publication. Yet despite the strengths of much of this work, too little of it maps directly on to the experience of everyday life for autistic people. This proposed research asks whether we can change that by: (1) creating greater opportunities for autistic people themselves to play an active role in the research process; and (2) moving original scientific experimentation into autism outside of the laboratory and into community settings that are more representative of everyday life.
