’Sensory processing and mental health in autistic people’

Dr Ashley Robertson will be talking about her research. Description: ‘In this talk, I will talk through some of the work I have conducted so far, which mainly spans two separate areas. The first is sensory processing, in which I used both quantitative and qualitative approaches to explore reactivity to sensory stimuli in autistic people, as well as subclinical populations. The second is broadly around mental health in autistic people, in which I’ve been involved in a number of co-produced projects which have focused mainly on a) risk factors and b) improving support.’
