Research study exploring social confidence.

Wed 19 Jul 2017 2:52pm


My name is Jules and I am a trainee clinical psychologist at the University of Bath. I am conducting a survey which has been designed to explore whether some of the factors thought to influence social confidence in the wider population are equally relevant for people with autism. I am doing this to help psychologists understand how current therapies for social anxiety may need to be adapted to be more helpful for people with autism who wish to access them.

Experiences in family courts with autism

Wed 7 Dec 2016 12:15pm

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I'm doing some research for my masters dissertation. I'm hoping to find out any experiences from adults with autism who have been through family courts. 

As my research has already discovered, often those working in courts do not know how to help those with autism. 

I would love to hear from anyone who has some experience. 

Many thanks.
