TALK: Autism from people not just textbooks

Autism from people not just textbooks Other events...
Robyn Steward is a researcher, author, educator and campaigner on the autism spectrum and passionate about including the perspectives of people on the autism spectrum in research, especially on topics which are important to them. She endeavours to ensure these perspectives are heard by the scientific community - that is, that autism research is done with autistic people, rather than on, to, or, for them. In this talk, Robyn will speak about some of the research in which she has led in the past few years, including work on ‘stimming’ or repetitive behaviours in autistic people, and research on autistic people’s experiences of menstruation. She will share her experiences of working with (non-autistic) autism researchers, and especially with early-career researchers and clinicians.
