Our landmark speaker event explores the relationship between the autistic experience and study or employment, and how to make adjustments that can support autistic people to thrive at study or work.

This event will be live streamed.

The live stream link will become active at 12:15 when the programme begins.

We will be accepting questions by email right up to the end of the Q& A session of the event. We will not read out senders' names, so if you would like to ask a question anonymously, this is the way to do it. Please use the words ‘Speaker Question’ in the subject line so that we can identify your question easily.

You can also still contribute to the data on autistic-like traits that are spread across the whole population which the Centre for Applied Autism Research (CAAR) is collecting via a brief anonymous questionnaire. The questionnaire will give you a score for your level of autistic-like traits. A high score is not necessarily indicative of autism. Group-level data will be discussed during the event.
