On this page you will find a record of the outputs from the project. This includes videos and slides (where possible) from the public lectures and public forum, and any associated journal articles and reports. There is also a link to the mini-documentary about ASC in adulthood.
Hearing about ASC from autistic people.
The creation of this short film stemmed from an idea from one of the participants in the project. The aim behind the film is to hear from autistic adults about their experience of autism. One of the many things I've learnt while working on this project is that people's experience of ASC can vary widely. This video presents a snap-shot from the perspective of three different autistic adults.
