Autistica is working with The Alan Turing Institute and the autism community to create an online platform where autistic people, family members and carers can share how sensory processing affects their daily life.  

This will be the largest ever collection of these experiences and it will be used to make environments such as schools, workplaces and leisure facilities more accessible for autistic people, and to educate the public.

Many autistic people feel that research happens without them. This project aims to empower autistic people as co-creators. Autistic people will be involved at every stage; setting the direction of the project, shaping it and acting as authors in the final research papers.

You can find out more about the project on Autistica’s website.
