Engaging the autistic community and raising awareness about the women within it, Jan 2018-July 2018

Activity: Participating in or organising event(s)Organising a conference, workshop, exhibition, performance, inquiry, course etcResearch


Together with colleagues from Autism@Manchester we developed and ran two events aimed at raising awareness of autism in girls/women and increasing trust and communication between the research and autism communities. The first event was a workshop based around a training package for autism practitioners, developed by an autistic woman. The second event involved a presentation by an autistic female researcher and a poster session. Attendees included autistic people and their family members, autism researchers and practitioners.
