What our Friends say about the scheme

‘The Friends of Research Autism scheme is a very useful resource, particularly for use in training and for my own self development’. Angie Nicolle, Bachelor of Philosophy, Teacher of Autism, Haute Vallee School, Jersey.
‘I work as an Independent Educational Psychologist, and come from an academic background (Senior Lecturer/Reader). I provide medico-legal reports for courts and am required to proffer my professional opinion in respect of provision, interventions etc for children and young people with autism. Being a Friend of Research Autism keeps me up to date with the current level of evidence secured for various approaches.’ Dr Hilary Dyer, MBPsS, FRSA. Consultant Educational Psychologist, Specialist in Neuroatypical and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
‘I am the Executive Director of Practice Development at Dimensions, a nationwide organisation supporting people with learning disabilities, people with autism, and their families. The autism sector changes very quickly and being a Friend of Research Autism helps keep me and the rest of my team up to date with the latest news and research on autism. For example, the weekly news bulletin comes straight to my inbox, enabling me to quickly see what is and isn’t relevant, and enabling me to follow up anything I find interesting or useful’. Lisa Hopkins, Executive Director of Practice Development, Dimensions
‘I have been receiving Research Autism’s weekly bulletins for several years now with great gratitude. Why? Because they cover all the relevant information I need in one go, and inform me about issues which I would never have access to without considerable research myself. Research Autism has been particularly helpful to me and my members in following up on specific stories which are of interest to our Asperger Community – they are a very valuable, informed and reliable resource to all people interested in autism, and we are all most appreciative of the work they do for us.’ Carolann Jackson, President SAFE (Supporting Asperger Families in Essex) and ASAP (Asperger Syndrome Adults and Parents).
