About this Event


		LORIC Autism Ideas Cafe and Research Symposium image

LORIC Autism Ideas Cafe events are an opportunity for anyone with a personal, professional or academic interest in autism to meet, share ideas and collaborate on new projects.

LORIC are delighted to collaborate with The Participatory Autism Research Collective (PARC) to deliver an Autism Research Symposium.

This ‘symposium’ showcases four autism research projects undertaken by participatory autism researchers at BGU. 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 research and this will then be discussed in 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.

How can autistic people be supported to enter the creative “gig” economy?

Advantages and disadvantages of pursuing a “diagnosis” of autism.

The lived experiences and journeys of autistic teachers.

Is the reading of literature different in autistic and neurotypical pupils?
