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. This article neatly summarises some of the challenges of research – and many of these issues will also apply to other similar fields of enquiry. He also reminds us why research is important, which I personally find encouraging when I feel I’m a bit stuck or overwhelmed. I hope you find it an interesting read!
