Research project: 'Our Stories...': co-constructing Digital Storytelling methodologies for supporting the transitions of autistic children

Currently Active: 
Yes

This project will apply and extend a participatory Digital Storytelling methodology to explore the methodological challenge of gathering a range of views from autistic children, families, and practice in authentic ways.

This project will focus on applying and extending this methodology to the transitions of autistic children and families in a range of contexts and through piloting a range of digital video technologies (e.g. 360 degree virtual tours, Virtual Reality, Wearcams) across four projects, focusing on (1) the transition between primary and secondary school (2) the transition into further education, training, or employment (3) transitions into healthcare and assessment and (4) the micro-transitions that take place in the classroom every day. The project will develop practical and scalable digital methods, with practice settings, that will inform inclusive research practices and can also be used in the long-term by children, families, schools and organisations.
