The Autism Centre was founded in 2017.
We work with many students who have an interest in autism. Our founder, who completed the MAPP Programme at Bucks New University – is currently undertaking a PhD at Sheffield Hallam University Autism Centre – studying courage through an autistic lens. He is also a member of the Doncaster Autism Partnership Board, a consultant for the National Autistic Society, and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Manchester University within the field of autism.
The Autism Centre is currently researching the following topics:
- Courage and Autism

- Difference not deficit: A strength-based model
- Co-productive approach to language, policy and practice within a care / service environment
- Policies, drivers and levers
- Regulated Practice Diploma for SEND (Development stages of OFQUAL application)
