Mental Health and Wellbeing of Autistic Children in Education

Public E-team



The “Mental health and Wellbeing of Autistic Children in Education” team considers what makes education settings inclusive and supportive spaces for autistic children and young people, with the aim of actively promoting wellbeing and reducing practices that lead to distress. The team also explores the barriers autistic children and young people may face in schools and other educational settings, particularly those linked to anxiety, including anxiety related to school attendance, alongside a range of additional factors affecting autistic children’s mental health and experiences of education.

The team is chaired and moderated by Dr Emilia Misheva. Membership is open to autistic people; researchers, education and mental health practitioners; members of government and non-government organisations, as well as policy makers interested in shaping best-practice, evidence-based policy in this area.
