  • The team are interested in health technologies to help children (and their families) living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Their vision is to co-design, develop and evaluate a “just-in-time-adaptive-intervention” (JITAI) for paediatric ADHD. (read more)
  • This project sought to use Bristol’s Hatchling Event to take a distinctively Bristol look at migration, to widen the range of people that the University engages with, and to design a method for public engagement with issues around migration and asylum. (read more)
  • Using Immersive Technologies to assist in improving outcomes when informing young people on the risks and consequences of social problems is as yet widely untested.

  • Emerging research suggests autism is disproportionately overrepresented in homeless populations (Churchard et al. 2018). Autistic narratives of homelessness (Stone 2019) have highlighted significant barriers to service access and engagement. A key concern relates to the unsuitability of accommodation provision in the homelessness sector, particularly in consideration of the sensory processing and social differences associated with autism.
