Service provision for young autistic adults – accessing their views

Posted on Wednesday 18th July 2012

Susy Ridout, PhD student with Dr Karen Guldberg is undertaking research to access the views of autistic adults (16-25) concerning their support needs. A key element in providing appropriate and relevant support is, she believes, acknowledging the multiple and fluid identities of autistic individuals and their impact on the ways in which services are accessed and provided. In acknowledging the tension between accessing the views of autistic individuals, and the impact of cuts across all public sectors in the current economic climate, her study addresses ways in which services can be more creative and also more inclusive.
