Autism Research for Us: Creating an agenda led by the autistic community

ASAN and the Policy and Analytics Center (PAC), based at A.J. Drexel Autism Institute at Drexel University, will hold a symposium about autism research. Autistic people will tell researchers what we want and need from future research. Together we will create a plan for research and share it with everyone. Autistic people will lead the plan. We will talk about how we do research.

We will focus on participatory research. Participatory research is when the autistic community and researchers work together to design, do, and share research. We will also look at research led by autistic people. We especially want to hear from multiply marginalized autistic people, including:

• Autistic people of color;

• Non-speaking autistic people (both full time and part time);

• Autistic people who are LGBTQ+. LGBTQ+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities; and

• Autistic people with intellectual disabilities.
