CRAE’s Anna Remington,Laura Crane and Brett Heasman have been working on a project with the Centre for Applied Autism Research (CAAR) at the University of Bath, looking at adapting interview experiences for autistic people. People with autism are often disadvantaged in employment, healthcare and police interviews because impairments in social and cognitive processes (such as memory and communication) can affect their ability to relay relevant and important information.

This project aims to elucidate the difficulties that autistic adults have in reporting information in these contexts, and to develop appropriate methods of interviewing to support them.

At the recent Autistica Discover Conference, CAAR masters student Jemma Nicholson presented initial insights from the project in the poster session.
