Sarah Parsons – Professor of Autism and Inclusion Southampton Education School, University of Southampton

“I wanted to get in touch to wish you all a very happy summer and thank you for everything you’ve helped ACoRNS [the Autism Community Research Network @Southampton] to achieve over the past year. We’ve seen one of our students win a University prize for the impact of her work, been awarded some more money from the University to continue our innovative Digital Stories work next year, put in place some excellent projects at New Forest School focusing on student voice, and seen our first ACoRNS Doctorate by Chantelle Zilli. We congratulate Dr C for all her hard work, and the New Forest Care team for supporting her so brilliantly. We are very much looking forward to continuing our partnership next year.
