ACCESS- EU survey
The University of Cambridge and Autism-Europe are cooperating to conduct a study as a part of the AIMS-2 TRIALS project, to explore autistic people and their family carers’ experiences of a range of services across Europe and beyond.
Findings from the study will be used to shape a policy brief document addressing the need to improve service availability and accessibility for autistic people across Europe.
10 points study
Autistic people, their families and support persons are called to share their views on important policy improvements in the framework of the autism research consortium AIMS-2-TRIALS, of which Autism-Europe is a partner. The research, carried out by the University of Cambridge, aims at exploring their priorities for policy change to improve the lives of autistic people across Europe and beyond.
Study of screening diagnosis and early intervention in children with autism
AIMS-2-TRIALS partners are collaborating with the London School of Economics on an economic/ policy study of autism screening, diagnostic and early support/ intervention services for autistic young people, aged 0-18-years.
As part of this study, funded by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology, we have launched an anonymous online survey to collect information from parents, close relatives, carers and representatives of autistic young people on their lived experiences of accessing autism services.
The information collected from the survey will be used to inform policies on the design and development of services that better meet the needs of autistic people and their families.
The survey is currently aimed for parents, close relatives, carers and representatives of autistic young people in Spain, and the UK. If you wish to find out more information about the survey, or to take part, please see the link provided below:
