We have several exciting projects on the go that complement our work in schools.
Autism and Sleep
We have worked closely with a researcher at University College London and a talented group of autistic young people to create a leaflet and animation about what helps autistic teenagers to get a good night’s sleep. Most sleep advice is for the general population, so it is helpful to share information which specifically focuses on autistic young people. This project is particularly special because it is brought to life by a song and music video created by some members of the group.
The co-produced animation about what helps autistic young people to get a good night’s sleep can be viewed below.
We are a pilot site for research led by Cathy Creswell, trialling a new remote, parent-led intervention for children aged 5-12 experiencing anxiety. It is called Online Support and Intervention (OSI) and we are part of this national study run by the University of Oxford. Parents access content online and receive weekly telephone support from a therapist.
The Eating Disorder Prevention Program
Our team is collaborating with Creative Education to develop an eating disorder prevention programme for delivery in schools. The programme will provide resources for young people, parents and carers, and staff in education settings.
