World Autism Awareness Week (26 March - 2 April) aims to raise awareness about autism as well as make a difference to the lives of autistic people.
Here at Leeds Beckett, since October 2014 our Disability Assessment Centre has been working in partnership with The National Autistic Society (NAS), to enhance our service provision and establish a network of autism champions across our University. This project offered us an opportunity to work with specialists on Autism Spectrum Conditions, including colleagues from the NAS, autistic students and their parents, and academic staff. We are the first university to work with The National Autistic Society’s Employment Training and Consultancy Service in this way. Already improvements have been made including marketing and literature, interactions with customers, the physical environment, and processes and procedures.
Please see our below for research outputs by Leeds Beckett academic staff who are active in research across this subject area, plus resources held by the Library.
