Time for Autism study

Date: 29 March 2021

Today marks the start of World Autism Awareness Week, and our Research and Innovation team are supporting the Sussex-wide Time for Autism study, along with Brighton and Sussex Medical School and Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The researchers are looking for families in Brighton and Hove and across Sussex to take part in a new education programme designed to teach medical students about autism.

Each family will be paired with two students from Brighton and Sussex Medical School, who will visit them at home three or four times over the course of a year.

This is an exciting opportunity for children and young people on the autism spectrum and their families to share experiences and expertise with medical students, to help them to provide better care in the future.
