Autism Employment event at the RSA:
My research concerns cognitive dysfunction across and within neurodevelopmental disorders. Overall, my research has both theoretical and applied (educational and clinical) aims and benefits. My work falls into the following strands:
- Cognitive dysfunction in developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), including executive functions, motor skill and the cognitive processing of emotions (including alexithymia) in children and adults with ASD, as well as their relatives. Interactions between these domains, and depression and anxiety, are also being investigated.
- The Employment & Developmental Disorders Study (including The Autism & Employment Study). This study is evaluating the employment experiences of adults with neurodevelopmental disorders, including ASD and DCD, as well as parents of a child with a neurodevelopmental disorder. This work is conducted alongside a range of colleagues including Dr. Alice Jones. I have also worked with the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities and Prospects Employment Service on this topic. Read our HR factsheet on ASD, employment and mental health, including 'Top Tips' and case studies at: http://eprints.goldsmiths.ac.uk/, as well as information for Human Resources employees (http://eprints.gold.ac.uk/5684/) as well as those working in Occupational Health (http://eprints.gold.ac.uk/7178/). I have been involved in setting up the Autism Employment Alliance which is a large group of academics, employers and other related organisations to work together to improve employment support for people with ASD and their [potential] employers.
- The profile of motor difficulties in children and adults with developmental coordination disorder (DCD, often referred to as dyspraxia), and its relationship to socio-emotional difficulties and mental health issues.
- Investigating co-occurring symptoms in neurodevelopmental disorders, in particular the nature and extent of limb coordination impairments in disorders such as DCD, ASD and specific language impairment. On-going work has shown, for example, that children with a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders experience widespread difficulties in many areas of limb coordination. This has implications for both theoretical accounts of the disorders and methods of providing support in education and daily life situations.
- The Autism Diagnosis Study: I am involved in this study, funded by The British Academy. Other investigators are Dr. Laura Crane, Dr. Lorna Goddard and Professor Lucy Henry. The study's website is here. There are many outputs from this study including papers on adult experience of diagnosis here, parent experience of diagnosis here (and video abstract here). Our piece in The Conversation is here. There's more to come - keep up-to-date on the study website.
- The DCD/dyspraxia Diagnosis Study: We are seeking detailed experiences of obtaining a diagnosis of DCD/dyspraxia in the UK. This project is a collaboration with Dr. Laura Crane and Claudia Alonso. See more information about this study at http://www.gold.ac.uk/dcd-diagnosis/ Results of phase one will be available over the next few months.
Interested in participating in my research?
Our lab is called GOAL (GOldsmiths Action Lab). We have lots of studies running at the moment!
The Autism & Employment Study
We are running a large Autism and Employment project. This has a few strands. Some people will be suitable in all strands, other people will fit the criteria for one strand. If you are an adult (aged 18+) with or without Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), please consider helping us. The findings of our project will inform policy and support for those in or seeking work.
Strand (1) A survey: http://ww3.unipark.de/uc/Team_Hill/2c76/ (this takes around 30-45 minutes to complete and there is the chance of winning £125 from a prize draw). You do not have to be in employment at the moment to complete this survey. Please also complete it if you have not had a paid job, but have been a volunteer.
Strand (2) A Survey: https://survey.gold.ac.uk/autismandemployment (this takes around 15-20 minutes to complete and you must be in paid employment to complete this survey).
Strand (3) Are you about to start paid or voluntary work, or are actively looking for such work at the moment? We are keen to hear from adults with and without ASD who are about to begin any kind of paid or voluntary employment. Part of our Autism and Employment project is looking at the effects of employment prior to starting a paid or voluntary job and then a few months into the job. If you think you may be able to help with this, please contact Lisa Dockery: email@example.com.
The 'Moving People' study
Motor skills support the way we interact with the environment and those around us. Children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) and those with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) present with difficulties in motor skill or social interaction, to varying degrees. To fully investigate the relationship between motor and social abilities, we are seeking children aged between 7-10 years with a diagnosis of DCD or ASD to take part in this study. We have developed new innovative eye-tracking measures, which address action perception and understanding, and also social processing scenarios. These measures support the more standardised assessments. We hope you would agree, this is a great way to further our understanding of these two neurodevelopmental disorders and to raise awareness of the relationship between motor and social development. Even better, children love the eye-tracking games! Interested in taking part? For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or DCDproject@gold.ac.uk.
The Movers & Shakers Study
Researchers in my lab are investigating the role on motor development of having an older sibling. We are looking for infants of 6 months and younger to take part in a study of motor development. Infants who have no older siblings or who have one older sibling who is 6 years or younger can take part. Parents will receive a diary in which they can keep track of their infant's motor milestones between the ages of 4 months and 18 months. At 18 months, we will organise a research visit to conduct a short motor assessment with your child. The diary has blank pages for comments and photos, and parents can keep the diary at the end of the study as a keepsake. Parents will also be asked to complete a few questionnaires during the study. This is a great way to keep a note of your child's development (see http://baby-brains.com/2013/09/24/time-really-flies/) and we'll provide plenty of support over the course of the study. If you are interested or know someone with an infant who would be interested, please contact Hanna Adeyinka on email@example.com or 020 7078 5484 to find out more details and to sign up.
The Body Sense Study
We are investigating how children learn to use different senses (such as vision and touch) to understand their own bodies, which is important for everyday environmental interactions. Children with DCD or Williams syndrome can take part. They will complete fun sensory, cognitive and motor tasks with us, and parents would complete several paper-based questionnaires. This project is funded by the European Research Council. For more information please email Joanne Camp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
