Practical tips during self-isolation for autistic adults, their families and carers

As we all self-isolate during the pandemic, our ACER team has been keen to provide something useful and helpful for the various autism communities with which we are involved. We felt that we can most usefully offer some practical and positive tips from our network of students and networks to share the wealth of practical experience that we have in our community. We offer you these 2 minute vlogs with tips from autistic adults, practitioners and researchers and we hope you find them interesting and useful.
