Autism@UL Webinar series. Autism and the City with Keith McAllister

The Autism@UL Special Interest Group (SIG) welcomes Keith McAllister, Director of Architecture & Planning, School of Natural & Built Environment, Queen’s University Belfast. Keith will share his experiences of introducing change into the environment in order to create inclusive spaces for living and learning. Keith’s ongoing academic research is focussed broadly on the relationship between Architecture and Fear, especially for those populations without a voice. As the extremely proud father of a
wonderful son with autism, his particular interest is in the relationship between architecture and autism.

Request for help in a Study

The University of Surrey would like participants to complete a short questionnaire, exploring how autistic young people with learning disabilities use technology and how this might be associated with social skills and social vulnerability. More specifically, they are hoping to recruit the parents/caregivers of autistic young people with learning disabilities (aged between 13-18 years) who they hope will participate with their son/daughter.

The study can be completed entirely online, and participants can withdraw at any time.  Those who complete the questionnaire will be offered a €15 voucher for their participation and will also be able to request a report summarising our main findings.

If you are able to help them out they would be very grateful. For more information about the study, please contact Louise Irvine (li00130@surrey.ac.uk ) or Emily Farran (e.farran@surrey.ac.uk).   Please forward on to anyone who might be interested.


If you have any feedback, reply to this email and we will take everything on board.

Until next month

Keith and the ASD Ireland team.
