We are in the process of writing a report based on the thematic analysis of the interviews.
October to December 2019
We have conducted interviews, then had them transcribed. We then proceeded to do a thematic analysis across these interviews. Our thanks to all the interviewees.
Our paper Accessing services and social interaction: strategies used by autistic people has been accepted for publication in the forthcoming The Neurodiversity Reader.
Marion attended the Autism Europe International Congress 2019 and discussed some of the strategies identified by our questionnaire to autistic people in a presentation titled Expertise and strategies used by autistics to overcome barriers (pdf). To get a feel of the stream our presentation was in and get a more general feel of the conference, read Marion’s report An Auternative at Autism Europe International Congress 2019 (pdf).
We wrote a report based on the thematic analysis of the questionnaire responses.
Callum, Marion and Zyggy presented at the Autistica conference a poster titled Obtaining Access to Services: Barriers and Solutions (pdf) with some preliminary results from our questionnaire.
