Autism Post Diagnostic Research Findings

Autism Post Diagnostic Research Findings

Earlier this year three online workshops for autistic adults were held at the University of Sheffield to hear their views on what post-diagnostic support should look like for autistic adults.

Researchers Dr Megan Freeth, Dr Daniel Poole and Suzy Crowson are sharing their findings from their research study on improving support for autistic adults.

What is the study?

This study looked at the support autistic adults receive after being diagnosed. Autistic people shared their experiences of post-diagnostic support and suggested ways that the support on offer could be improved.

What is the workshop?

The workshop will share the findings of the research with autistic people, policy makers, service providers and service commissioners. Plans for a future study, which will build on the work already done, will also be discussed

When is the workshop?

Thursday 30th June from 1-2pm

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
