Autism Research

At Meadow High School we understand the importance of gaining a fuller understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to aid diagnosis and treatment. We have been working with leading worldwide researchers and we are delighted that some of our students and families have been/are  involved in the following very exciting research projects: 

Kings College London -  EU AIMS SynaG Research Project 

This is the largest study in the world into the brain development and social behaviour in people with an autism spectrum disorder. Involving over 8000 participants worldwide with autism, they are hoping to understand more about the autism spectrum and genetics. 

The School of Education, University of Roehampton. 

Research project ‘The voices of young people with ASD in transition to post-16 education, following the introduction of the new SEND Code of Practice’. 


University College London 

Sleep Study on adolescents with autism.

UCL are still actively looking for particpants with autism spectrum disorder to join a very important research study into sleep disorders and autism. If you are interested in your son/daughter becoming involved, please kindly contact Mrs. T. Watson at school for more details. Email:
