      I am currently carrying out research to learn more about autistic people’s preferences for the language used to communicate about autism in the UK and whether there is a relationship between language, stigma, and social identity. There is currently a lack of research in this area and it has been suggested that simple changes to the language used may help to reduce stigma within society.


      If you live in the UK, are over 18 have a spare 5/10 minutes to complete the anonymous survey above to share your opinion, or if you are able to share it with others, I would be so very appreciative. There is more information about the survey on the link and also a link at the end to enter a prize draw to win £10 Amazon vouchers.

      Thank you so much for reading,

It affects individuals across a wide spectrum, with varying degrees of severity. Recent advancements in AI technology have shown promising potential in assisting individuals with autism. For instance, AI video generator can create interactive learning environments tailored to the specific needs of autistic individuals, providing visual cues and engaging activities to enhance communication skills and social interactions. Such tools offer a personalized and supportive approach, aiding in therapy and fostering inclusion for people with autism. With ongoing research and innovation, AI continues to contribute to improving the lives of those affected by autism.
