Message from Employment Autism about the meeting:
The number of autistic adults in employment is often reported to be very low compared to the general population. Employment Autism is a new charity responding to the low rate of autistic adults in fulfilling employment. We are in the early stages and plan to launch initially as an information service to both employers and autistic jobseekers and employees.
This meeting is an opportunity to influence the design, content and direction of the service and contribute your views and experience. We would like your feedback on the initial design of our website, logo and content. We will also be looking for freelance authors with knowledge and experience of employment, especially if you have HR/legal expertise as we will soon be commissioning content.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the planned series of PARC workshops in Birmingham have been cancelled. We will post any updates regarding future activities in the West Midlands and elsewhere.

As so little information has been made available on 115 million euros Autism Innovative Medicine Studies-2-Trials (AIMS-2-Trials) research project, we suggested to Autistica to publish their project agreement. They didn’t. Using the access to information scheme of the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 Joint Undertaking (IMI2 JU), we also requested a copy of the ‘Autism Innovative Medicine Studies-2 Trials (AlMS-2-Trials) grant agreement and its appendices’. After extending its deadline, the IMI2 JU sent us a partly redacted copy of the grant agreement. The redactions are explained in a cover letter. Continue reading

The Autism Innovative Medicine Studies-2-Trials (AIMS-2-Trials) was launched as the largest ever grant given to autism research on June 18th. Two weeks ago, we wrote some questions about this project and the autistic representation and monitoring, if any. Dr James Cusack, Director of Science, Autistica wrote a response that answered only some of our questions. Some people commented on both these posts (below each). Continue reading
Thank you to Panda, Dinah and Kabie for their post and to Damian for the opportunity to post here. It’s really good to have a nuanced discussion about Autistica’s involvement in AIMS-2-TRIALS. We are taking on board a variety of views, some critical, some undecided and some very supportive. All of these views are valid and will inform how we move forward. Continue reading
