What are Autism Representatives (A-Reps)?
Many autistic people tell us that effective therapies for common difficulties would help them live a better life. Autistica and University of Cambridge are partnering on a project called AIMS-2-TRIALS which aims to offer personalised approaches for autistic people. The Autism Representatives Group (A-Reps) is an essential component of AIMS-2-TRIALS. The A-Reps are a European-wide group of autistic adults and parents/carers of autistic people. The A-Reps will consult on AIMS-2-TRIALS from the many different perspectives of people with personal experience of autism.
