COVID-19

Learning from COVID-19: Identifying Facilitators and Barriers of Everyday Functioning and Mental Health for Autistic Adults. A Community Knowledge Exchange Project.
National Autistic Society (NAS), City University London and Autistica

Dr Amanda Roestorf and Anna Lambrechts, at the Autism Research Group at City, University of London, have been awarded £7,025 by Research England's Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF), to support a Community Knowledge Exchange project. The project is co-produced with autistic adults and parent-advocates of autistic people who speak few to no words. We are inviting the local community of autistic adults to share the helpful and unhelpful factors that have affected their everyday lives and well-being during the pandemic. At the end of the project we will write a brief report to share this information with the community and professionals, as a vital step to supporting autistic adults during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and to protect their well-being. The project is supported by the National Autistic Society and Autistica to facilitate community engagement and the dissemination of the planned project outputs to their networks of autistic people and professionals working in health and social care services.
