Regular readers will have seen that we have recently closed recruitment for the Click-East project, which is the study for which this website was set up.
Recently I had the great pleasure of attending the Meeting of Minds IV conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. I really enjoyed the conference, which had an admirable focus on looking at autism across the whole lifespan, and some excellent speakers including Pat Howlin, Liz Pellicano and Richard Mills.
Recruitment is now closed for the Click-East study, and over the next seven days myself and my research associate will be seeing a last seven families who would like to enrol.
A quick blog post today as in ten minutes I’m off for Christmas – and I hope you will all be having a well-deserved rest at this time of year too!
A quick blog this week, just to link to this excellent, short interview with Richard Mills. He is Director of Research at the National Autistic Society and is a fantastic supporter of academics working in an effort to benefit the autism community.
The time has come when I am beginning to turn my attention to thinking about what projects I’ll be engaged in after the Click-East study comes to an end in July 2013.
A quick post this week just to link to a video showcasing a colleague’s research project which is combining eye-tracking and virtual reality characters to explore how people with and without autism view social information.
I recently had the opportunity to be filmed talking about my current research as part of a University of Edinburgh project. If you’re interested in a one minute digest of what we’re doing then check it out here.
The period in which we can recruit new families into the Click-East trial is coming to an end in January 2013 so my big priority right now is to see as many families as I possibly can.
People reading this blog and those I work with would be forgiven for thinking that I haven’t really been doing anything on the Click-East trial lately. However it is ticking over smoothly in the background, though there has been a recent dip in recruitment.
