Autism Research

A core part of our work is to undertake research in the area of autism. Our research interest is mainly in the area of autism parenting, especially from Black African disability perspective. Research indicates that African parents in the UK have diverse experiences when it comes to autism parenting. Many feel misunderstood, left out or isolated. Our research enables us to understand why this is the case in order to inform services like health and social care who can in turn improve the experiences of black African parents of children with autism and disabilities.
