Take part in our Autism Reading Group (ARG: currently meeting online), where we join with our Southampton ACORNS group to discuss issues in autism: email and ask to be put on the ARG list.

We welcome everyone (and we recognise the categories listed below can overlap)

Autistic people: are at the centre of our work, we appreciate all autistic voices sharing first-hand experiences and ideas about how to make the world more accessible – help shape our agenda.

Parents / carers: meet other stakeholders, comment on and contribute to research, discover new practices, and share your own experiences of what has worked and what to improve.

Professionals: meet other stakeholders to share feedback on services, comment on and contribute to research, hear about autistic experiences and those of families, bring ideas for improvement and inspirations for new practices.

Researchers: gain wider perspectives from all stakeholders to inform, share and discuss research as well as helping to identify and shape research priorities.

Students: learn about current research, discuss papers in the reading group and learn more about different career options.
