Hello everyone!

Hope you and your families are keeping well and safe.

My name is Stella Koiliari and I am special educational needs (SEN) teacher.

This year, I am doing a master focusing on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (MSc in AIIDD) at the Tizard Centre, University of Kent. As part of my thesis, I am going to conduct online interviews with autistic students (14-18 years old) who attend mainstream education settings in the UK.

So, if you are a parent of an autistic student and you both decide your child should participate in my study, please, feel free to contact me ([email protected]).

See below for more information regarding the project.
