Partnering to produce respectful and meaningful research and practice

Autistic people and their parents/carers, researchers, and autism practitioners work together to ensure our research is relevant, respectful and translates into proven practices that support Autistic people to have the best possible opportunities throughout their lives.

Partnering with Autistic people and their families/carers

We value the perspectives of Autistic people and their families and are committed to working in partnership to identify research priorities, design and implement our autism practice research projects and guide our future research agenda. We do this through the ARCAP Research to Practice Partnership Approach.

Partnering with Aspect staff and practitioners

ARCAP's staff includes Autistic researchers who provide valuable insights and guidance around the design, delivery, implementation and reporting of research projects.

The ARCAP team has a unique advantage in working alongside Aspect’s educators, therapists, service co-ordinators and support workers. Drawing on the hands-on knowledge of these specialist autism practitioners provides valuable insights into the realities of autism practice, informs our research and allows us to develop and test ideas that will work not just in theory, but also in practice.
