Social Work Events Supporting autistic adults without learning disabilities: what does the evidence tell us? (MRC)

This event is part of the Making Research Count (York) programme which aims to promote communication and knowledge sharing between academics and social work and social care professionals.

Professor Bryony Beresford is a health and care services researcher and co-Director of the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York.  She has carried out a number of studies on autism across the life-course.  Two of her recent projects have looked at the mental health and social/care needs and experiences of autistic adults without learning disabilities and models of care and support.

At this event Bryony will present on the ways local authorities and Local Autism Partnership Boards have responded to the Autism Act and government autism strategies, looking specifically at diagnostic and post-diagnostic support, including low intensity, long-term support, and how to ensure sustainable, autism-specialist care and support for autistic adults without LD.  She will also share findings on the ways autistic adults use third sector/peer support networks and communities.
