PROJECTS

​We are exploring parental understanding of autism (ASD) and for this reason we invite parents of children with autism to take part in our online survey about 'Parental Understanding of Autism in relation to the Individual Characteristics of Your Child'.

PROJECT 1

​As a part of the wider project we aim to develop a practical, evidence-based tool that will provide a clear outline of the child's strengths, abilities, and unique characteristics, along with the traditional clinical descriptions about autism, that will inform parents’ decisions and improve their interactions with their children.

PROJECT 2

​We aim to test the effectiveness of the tool and usability for parents, teachers, healthcare professionals and people with autism.

PROJECT 3

​We are interested in your input. What would further help or support you and your child in relation to your needs?

Please feel free to share your comments with us!
