fig2-1362361314529627: Participants’ priorities for future autism research in the UK: theme and sub-themes.

Mentions: We identified one overarching theme from subsequent discussions on people’s priorities for future research. All stakeholders, especially autistic adults, parents and practitioners, prioritised research into issues of immediate practical concern. They wanted ‘to see real change and real things happening’ for themselves, their families and for the people they work with. This theme was divided into three sub-themes: (1) services and supports, (2) knowledge about autism and (3) research logistics (see Figure 2).
