Information for:

Research participants

If you are interested in taking part in research, please do not hesitate to contact Jenny Gibson by email:

At the moment we are not actively recruiting for research participants, but we are developing projects on the following:

  • Autism diagnosis and assessment in children under 7

  • Play-based interventions to support social and communication development for autistic children under 8 years old

  • A strengths based approach to friendships, play and well-being in autistic young people

If you are interested in consulting on the design of these projects please do contact us.

Prospective graduate students

I usually take on one or two new PhD students each year.

Prospective students should ideally contact me to discuss their research proposal before submitting an application.

See the Faculty of Education website for more information about the graduate admissions process.
