We are delighted to announce the next Scottish Autism Research Group seminar. This seminar, to be held on Thursday 2nd March in the Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh, will explore a variety of topics within autism and mental health, including anxiety, depression, school-based mental health research and practitioner perspectives.

The day will feature talks from scientists and researcher-practitioners across Scotland and the rest of the UK.  We are delighted that our keynote speaker for the day will be Dr Jacqui Rodgers, senior lecturer in clinical psychology in the Institute of Neuroscience, Newcastle University. Much of Jacqui’s work focuses on anxiety in autism, exploring theoretical models, assessment tools and intervention approaches. However, her work spans a wide range of topics in autism, including sensory processing, repetitive behaviour, and quality of life.

Other confirmed speakers include:
