About this event

Participatory autism research is defined as research where members of the autistic community have control over the research agenda and the analysis of, and reflection on, the data that is generated. It embeds the values of the draft framework for inclusive autism research (Chown et al., 2017), including that autism research should be aimed at improving the lives of autistic people.

Each participant in the symposium will introduce an element of their current work and this will then be discussed by the group. Each section of the symposium will last for approximately 15 minutes, with the symposium section of the event lasting one hour. Comment by audience will not be supported during the symposium, but there will be an opportunity for delegates to discuss the event in groups afterwards.

Topics for presentation will be:

  • Using ethnographic and phenomenological research with the autistic community.
  • Key themes from the 13th Autism-Europe International Congress: Current and Conflicting thinking.
  • The use of creative research methods in a case study of an autistic trainee teacher, including art, journaling and poetry.
  • A parent’s perspective on sharing Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) information.
