Survey of autistic school staff working in an education role in the UK

News

Below is a short, anonymous online survey for autistic adults who either work, or have worked in an education role in a school in the UK. This is a pilot survey, the aim of which is to get an initial idea of the sorts of education roles which autistic people have in schools and the kinds of issues they face. I hope that the survey will enable me to develop a more detailed and in-depth project on this issue in the future, for which I will be seeking funding. The overall idea is to understand better what needs to be done to help autistic school staff in their work and careers and enable better recruitment and retention of autistic staff, which in turn could benefit autistic children too.
This survey was itself devised with significant input from a committee of three autistic adults (two teachers and one who visits schools in a professional capacity), who agreed the final version. It has also been agreed following the rigorous ethical review processes of King’s College London.

Please note that the survey is live until 22nd December 2019.

Thanks, Dr Rebecca Wood.
