Touch and Autism!

Ellena England


Hello all, 

I am a MSC student working in autism research trying to explore how response to touch affects people with autism. For example disliking particular textures, light touch being extremely painful. To explore these symptoms Newcastle University has developed a 10-15 minute survey that any adult can undertake. If anyone would like to take part the link to tells survey is:

Or if you have any questions or interested in sensory symptoms in autism and want it know about the results or about other research in this area please feel free to contact me at:

Thank you!
