The double empathy problem: Implications for autistic university students

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference

Description of Activity

I received BPS Research Seminar Competition Award (£3000) to organize three seminar series to establish a dialogue between researchers investigating autism’s ‘double empathy problem’ and practitioners who work with autistic students at
university. This was important to promote an inclusive research approach focusing
on not only autistic students but also the wider community and subsequently enable improved and more meaningful research outcomes to support autistic university students.
