Research: Consultations and Surveys


Researchers at the University of Cambridge are exploring autistic people and their family or carers’ access and experiences of a range of services across Europe. This project is called ACCESS-EU which is the policy part of a larger research project called AIMS-2-TRIALS .


They want to hear from you if:

you are autistic and over 16 years old or a family carer of an autistic person over 16 who is unable to complete the survey themselves


you have (or your autistic family member has) accessed (successfully and/or unsuccessfully) a service


The survey is open to individuals (or carers with a family member) with a formal diagnosis of autism, those who are self diagnosed and/or waiting for an autism diagnostic service.


The survey asks questions about experiences with services received in the past two years. It takes 10-20 minutes to complete. There is more information about the study and the aims of the research at the start of the survey.

The survey is open until end of August 2020. If you have any questions, please contact the study team on

The NAS has set up a survey titled "Poll: Autism Friendly Changes"  Your feedback is important! Here is the survey

NAS has launched a campaign, Not Enough, demanding better support and services for autistic people.


You'll find that a shocking two in three autistic people in England don't get the support they need, which could equate to up to 327,000 autistic adults in England. Current support is simply not enough.


Have a look at the Report put together from the results of a survey:

Survey to explore differences between neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals.


My name is Katharine Macy and I am a masters student at the University of York. I am currently studying autism in the Palaeolithic (Lower stone age) and am conducting a survey to explore differences between neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals. Participants must be over the age of 18, but anyone can answer it, autistic and neurotypical alike! The more responses the better and I am hoping to be able to draft political policy from it if there are enough responses. It would mean a lot to me if you'd be willing to fill in the survey and share it with any friends and families possible. It should only take 10-15 minutes. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me via
