Our research partners include both Prior’s Court staff and external parties, including Masters and PhD students, who wish to conduct formal research exploring a diversity of autism research topics.

Recent research projects have included a feasibility study for a ‘Talking Wall’ which was published in the Journal of Autism and Development Disorders. The findings of this project recommended there was merit to further investigation. As a result, Talking Walls have been implemented in locations across Prior’s Court to gather further data.
