Maria is recruiting participants for research about the transition from education to employment, and employment experiences for autistic young people.

Moving from education to employment is an important area of research for understanding quality of life for autistic adults. There is also a national autism-employment gap where autistic adults are less likely to be in full-time employment than people belonging to other disability categories. Research about this topic will inform knowledge about best practice for supporting autistic young people moving from education into employment. We would like to hear from you if you are an autistic adult:

  1. age 18-25;
  2. living in the UK;
  3. who seeking (or already has) employment experience.

Follow this link to find out more about Maria’s research, what taking part will involve, and sign-up to the study if you are interested in being involved.


If you have any questions, please contact Maria at maria.ashworth@ucl.ac.uk who will be happy to help.
