In the Research Toolkit, we will focus on the types of skills that are relevant to locating the information or resources most helpful to you.
While we will be honing in on research related to autism, many of the skills we discuss can be applied to other kinds of research too!
Developing these skills can be the difference between finding the right resource for you and never knowing it existed.
The Lifespan Toolbox is a collection of toolkits for everyone in the autism community from self-advocates, family members, professionals, and other members of the community to get on the same page about autism and lifespan.
We span topics all over the lifespan, specifically thinking about the adulthood years (the longest span of our lives!) and how we can all work together to support the autistic person/people in our lives and community.
Research and reported experiences from autistic individuals show a need to receive individualized support regarding life skills and to be connected with others. That’s where the Lifespan Toolbox comes in!
